A rubber mallet was not used... only the gear puller to remove the nut and then cleaned off the spline nut post prior to reinstalling the nut.
Autozone carries a puller that fits fine: OEM 2 & 3 Jaw 2 Ton Puller (25901).

I picked one up for $35. OEM is the brand name. I used it in the 2 arm config and it worked just great.
