Default Why are Camry driveshafts so hard to remove ??

A few weeks back some of you talked about having so much trouble
removing Camry driveshafts. I have replaced 2 in my Camry and I was
beginning to think they would NEVER come out. What a job.
I have replaced many , many shafts over the years....Honda , Fords ,
Pontiacs, Chevy and maybe some others that don't come to mind right
WHY are the Toyota shafts so hard to remove ? All the others just took
a little prying with a large screwdriver....kind of a quick snap
released the snap ring and then they were loose all the way out.
The Toyota shafts , at least the ones I have removed have been tight
until completely out. Are they machined to closer tolerances or what ?
I thought they just happened to be tight as all sorts of odd things
happen to me when it comes to cars.
Then I noticed these older posts tonight describing all the problems
some of you have had and now I'm curious as to why Toyota ?
