Hello, unfortunatley you need a couple special tools to do this job unless you can get a regular puller from parts store with thin grab arms and maybe? grind the tips down to be able to grab the back side of the bushing. The bearing is internal to the trans and trna smust come apart to repair what is called the final drive unit. GM parts may? be able to supply the special tools but would be rare if they did. may be able to order them for you.Doing the seal only is not bad with regular tools, its getting the old bushing out and tapping new one in with seal
