a BIG c-clamp does the job. I think we used a 12" or 14" c-clamp.

^yup that works. When I did mine I used the factory bottle jack with a socket extension on top of it. Probably not the safest method out there, but it did the job very well.

You don't really need to buy a tool to do it. A 2 prong gear puller will also work, you can rent one from a parts store if the other methods mentioned don't sound good to you.

big C clamp, take the flat part off so just the ball is exposed, it fits right into the key. then just tighten the clamp.
