Hub seized up while trying to pull off by hand & won't slide off shaft in order to access lower ball joint(2003 Blazer 4WD V6). Is there some type of puller tool for this kind of removal application? What's it called?

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 separate the hub from the shaft? What it called?

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