I need more help my axle ripped from the boot so the part where thr first set of bearings is is now exposed I had to replace shock and this is what caused axle to get damaged
And rip from boot
So where I'm having trouble is actually getting the shaft side of axle that goes into transfer case out of transfer case transmission or whatever that is
Should I just pull on it

The axle doe not just slide out, its snapped in place, to get it out you need to take a long pry bar and snap it at the trans axle and it will pop out.
