Removing 8-lug Dana 44 HD FF axle shafts?

Shouldn't the axle shafts in an 8-lug Dann 44 HD FF axle just pull right out?

I know they did in the 14-bolt rear, but the front 44 axle shafts seem to be kinda hung up on something.

About half the axle bolts sheared off and I need to pull the axle shafts so that I can drill/EZ-out the remainder of the bolts and replace them with some Grade 8 cadmium coated bolts. . .I don't know if the bolts were previously overtorqued or if they are just that old. . .the front and rear axles came off the same truck and I didn't have any problems with the rear axle.

Thanks!

I'll stop myself right now. . .I wasn't thinking about this being a front axle with knuckles. . .I will probably have to remove the wheel/brakes to get the axle out. . .maybe I will just try to drill the axle bolts out through the access holes instead of pulling the axles. . .I just got the front end back together and I don't want to pull all that stuff off again.
