2003 Chevy Blazer LS 4WD V6 - trying to replace upper & lower ball joint; removed & disconnected wheel, hub harness, hub nut, tie rod end & ball joint shafts; hub won't slide off shaft so that I can access lower ball joint/control arm rivets. Is there a specialty puller to sperate the hub from the shaft? What it called?

No, spray it with lube and you must shock it out with a big rubber mallet.
