Bravo-man.... I did... Reread my post!!!
You can't get the puller (at least the one I have) on very good because of the front axle... And also, when you do get it on, you can't get much leverage on it because of the awkward position under the vehicle. We struggled with it for an hour or so, before deciding to take the tierod apart. If something else works or worked for you, cool. Otherwise I'm just telling what worked best for me.
