Seized rear wheel hub on 04 Lesabre...help?

I was going to put some camber alignment shims on the rear wheels of my trusty ol' '04 Lesabre....got the bolts out of the hub assembly, but the thing will NOT come off. Hammered it, bathed it in PBBlaster...nada.

I am going to reuse these hubs after I put in the shim, so I'd rather avoid any destructive ways to get it out...so if anyone out there knows any secret tricks, I'd sure be appreciative...

    In the video he just keeps hitting on one side then the other with a 3-pound hammer. You might try soaking the area where the hub meets the spindle with PB Blaster hoping it softens the corrosion there that's holding the hub.

    Repeated vibration is your friend.
