The spindle is what holds the front tires on. The axle is what holds the rear tires on. To remove the spindle, you have to remove the brake caliper first the remove the ball joint nuts. hit the spindle were the ball joints go in. The shock will release the ball joints. To remove the axles, you have to remove the differential plate, spin the differential until you see the bolt that locks the center pin in. remove both. push in the axle and remove the C clip. pull the axle out.
just remove the nuts on the back side of the hub. the hub will still be firmly in place. you will have to beat either the hub itself or on the bolts from the back to get it loose. they are usually in there pretty tight, so it will take quite a bit of force to get it loose.
Has the drive shaft yoke been removed from the axle housing??? If not, remove the drive shaft. Once the drive shaft has been removed, Remove the nut that holds the drive shaft yoke and slid the yoke off the differential shaft. That will let you slid the differential from the axle housing once you unbolt the differential from the axle housing. Good luck and hope this helps.
to remove the axles, remove brake caliper and disc, remove hub assembly, the center hub/axle nut and...(there are i think 3-4 bolts on the back side of the spindle to remove the hub), you may have to force the hub off the spindle with a hammer or air hammer... once the hub is out the axle should slide out of the front differential allowing access to the ball joint nuts for removal...
