if there are short axles coming out of the diff that have a big 4 bolt flange on them those are called the stub axles. they pop out. pry them with something. they will pop. they have a spring ring on em that keeps em in place in the diff

btw, "its not a torsen so its got these things comming out to hold the axles" is not valid. both open and torsen diffs have those in 94 and early 95.

Two pry bars will do the trick, or you could use two large flat head screwdrivers, just watch the seals.
