Default Rear Driveshaft Center Bushing 01 Disco

What is the best way to remove the centering bushing inside the end of the driveshaft aside from the expensive "removal tool". Anyone have a specific technique??

Thanks

Buy one.

Or go to your local autoparts store and ask if they have a loaner. Many do.

That is for removing the centering peg on the diff -

I am replacing the bushing on the rotoflex end of the driveshaft - bush is inside the driveshaft - saw chisel, hammer and lots of curing - any other civilized method?

This link is for a blind hole bearing puller - which is exactly what you need to pull the bush out of the driveshaft.
