I assumed on the other thread that you meant the drum retainers.

I am assuming you are asking about the tapered retainers under the hub nuts to center the axle hub on the studs?

I have used a section of 3/4" schedule 40 pipe slid over the stud and a sharp rap with a 3# engineers to jostle them loose. It sounds like corrosion has seized them. Spray them with a good penetrating oil like Kroil or Gibbs and let the fluid work. After a bit use a propane torch and apply some heat to the studs to help brake them loose.

If you are bending and breaking things you may already have damaged the axle flange.

Kroil Google Deal

Gibbs GIBBS Ultra, Mega Penetrating Lubricating Oil
