    Hi, I have a 1988 Suburban 4x4 with 3/4 ton axles. The rear pinion seal went out on me. I already got the drive shaft and nut off but the flange will not come off for nothing. I've already snapped a jaw on a 5 ton three jaw puller. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    You need a puller that clamps around the flange and then a big C Clamp to keep the puller jaws from sliding off the flange. Those yokes can rust on pretty tight.
