You do realize that the passenger axle goes through the oil pan so your plan wont work. If the axle is part way out a pry bar or an air chisel should work. When you do get it out remember to use the clip from the original axle with the opening facing up. The last axle I did, once it was into the splines in the dif I held it level and just gave it a quick shove. That seated it and for once the hub slid right on.
