1997 honda foreman 400 front diff problems

Hey guys! having alot of trouble trying to split the front differential case on my 97 honda foreman 400. more like im having trouble getting the front cv shafts to come out. Everything ive read said the shafts should just come out with a hard tug. We’ve had some strong guys pull super hard on them and still will not come out. we’ve had em pull from both sides and they wont budge. Ive tried prying and putting on the ground and tugging and nothing! if somoene could tell me what im doing wrong or some way to get these out it would be great!
