Axles are CV joints on front and rear on 4WD models and have splined shafts.

WELL CAN YOU TELL ME?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 4 months ago.

A punch is the only tool to use. it just needs to be just smaller than the pin. A good punch and a big hammer.

This is the u joint above the CV joint? What are you trying to do? Do you have the axle out of the uit? The axle just jerks out of the rear end and you can take it out together!

I see question is still open, did you see my response? What was purpose of removing the shear pin? The usual is to replace the CV axle as a complete assembly with u joint already installed.
