How in the world do you get a rear axle off the diff??

Heat with an acetelene torch, and then dunk it cold water - that might break it loose.
Dissasemble the joint, and knock the plug out of the bottom of the cup, then you can get to the stub bolt on the diff, and remove the whole stub.... You need the special stub bolt tool tho....
Last resort - cut it off with a die grinder.

The special tool is an inverted torx, but you need one that will fit inside teh hole in the shaft, which most that I have seen do not.. Dunno where the tool could be aquired aside from a Subaru dealer. Maybe some deep creep, or other penetrating oil would help???

torch and then beas wax. = nothing
soaking in penitrating oil over night = nothing
took it to a machine shop and had them use a big press on it. = broken $200 pickle fork on press and not a bit of movement.
hope it works out for you
