Default ford 8.8 pinion gear; won't come out

is there something special about the 8.8?? i can't get the pinion gear out of the axle.
on every other axle i've taken apart, the gear slides right out after you take the pinion nut off.
i pounded it a bit, but don't want to break anything if i'm missing something. any suggestions??

use a big pry bar to get the flange off then put the nut back on the pinion and hit it with a hammer the bearing races are a little tight on the shaft

Removing the Pinion Gear Shaft

Bolt on anti-rotation lever to the pinion flange to keep the pinion shaft from moving, use at torque wrench to remove the pinion nut, unbolt the anti-rotation lever, use a 3-jaw puller to remove the pinion flange, knock on end of pinion flange to pop shaft out of bearings, pull off various parts depending on what stage you're at.

A 3 jaw puller or an impact? I'm sure your input has helped.

Seriously I use a big brass drift and a 5 lb sledge. I usually just push the pinion through the yoke and the outer bearing all at once.
