Front Outer Axle Tube Seal Removel

My Superior Axle & Tube outer D44 seals are stuck in. Before I get more physical with them, does anyone know of a trick that may facilitate their removal. Right now I am using light slide hammer force. I don't care if I destroy them so later today I will use more force if necessary.

Never mind. Got em out. Sometimes you have to get physical. About 50 or 60 hard as I could slide hammer pulls on each one.

A little bit of heat would have loosened them up a bit, but either way they'll come out.

Yea, I tried a little bit of heat with my heat gun but that got boring. I was afraid to put the torch on it cause I still had a lot of clean up to do. Thanks.
