The bearing inner came out with the hub, and I managed to get that pulled
off the hub.

However, the Hub Shark does not seem to want to pull the bearing outer
part from the housing.  There's a great deal more resistance than for
extracting the hub.  I've run my 3/4-drive CP impact wrench until the
socket stops moving despite multiple seconds of additional hammering, and
the thing just isn't coming.  Is there some other approach (other than
removing the strut and going to a press)?
