The front seal - the flange can be pulled off with the gear puller.
Apparently it will go back on without need of a press if you heat it.

You can get a 12 ton press from Harbor Freight Tools for around $100.
A couple of pieces of 5/8" square steel bar may be needed to hold
the flange - the arbor plates are too thick.

A press makes dealing with suspension bushings so much easier.
