put the nuts back on it, and hit the nut with a hammer, thats what i do, or use a block of wood and a hammer from all different angles

Why put the nuts back on and hit em? That would work to push the bolts out, but not do anything towards getting the spindle off. I've never had one that a peice of wood to protect and a bfh couldn't take off inh 2-3 hits.

I have.
chevy 10 bolt took an hour to hammer off, and I was using a full size sledge.

never sieze is cheap, so use it on the mating surfaces so it come apart easy next time

bfh??? I'm a few pounds north of 250, my hammers about 25, with a 4 foot handle and a peice of 4x4 oak. Never took that long for me.

my 78 ferd dana 60 ones took about half hour with a combination of beating the piss out of the end of it and using a chisel to pry it away from the knuckle. after 30 years of being on there, they are usually on there real tight
