If you're just looking to pop the rear axles, then any common slide hammer will work just fine. Fine one that fits your wheel studs and have at it. Easier and quicker than the factory tool.

Often the axle shaft will just pull out by hand with a good jerk (no jokes intended) once you've unbolted everything.
