Default Trouble getting disc rotors off Please Help

Hi,Been trying to to pull my rotors off my 96 ram 3500. I have the caliper off, axle nut off, hub to knuckle bolts loosened out about 1/4 inch . Been soaking hub bearing mounting area for a while. As you know, hub bearing and rotor come off as one part, to be split later. Last time i air hammered the backed out hub to knuckle bolts to break the rusted hub bearing to knuckle connection. Man thats tough. Sometimes i use a large 3 jaw puller on the rotor with the center on the axle. Sometimes that helps, sometimes it pulls apart the sealed hub bearing. Thats never a good thing ,cause you got to get it pressed togather. Any ideas . This is allways a bear of a job. One of Dodges better ideas. I'd Love to meet the guy that thought that up.
