Default 1999 gmc sonoma front diff removal

well looks like my whole front differential has to be removed from my truck. axle seal was leaking and my axle bearing got noisy.unfortunately i went to change them and the cv axel would not pull out. not even with a slide hammer with the adapter. block of wood didnt help either. any ideas? i was thinking after complete removal that i will just cut the shaft of the cv axle so i can atleast get the diff cover off of it. possibly break the bearing free from the shaft.
