Default Front hub assembly seized

Hello everyone, I have a 2007 Ram Sport and i went to replace the front hub assembly on the passenger side today and no way could I get it to budge once the bolts were removed. Does anyone have any tips on how to get this to loosen?

I used a chisel and a BFH to get the hub off my in-laws Exploder. Any type of wedge would work. I pounded on it for what seemed like hours before calling a buddy at a shop and he told me to use the chisel. It came off in like 2.3 seconds! Good luck!

Gave the chisel about 6 good whacks with a BFH and the hub was laying on the floor. Thanks for the help.
