I was just trying to pull the bearing off to replace it, so damaging it wasn't an issue

I watched a couple youtube videos for doing u-joints and was told to do this. It's crazy how much it loosens up the stiff joint right after the install. I'll probably give them a couple more taps and a another chooch of the grease gun when I pull the shaft again to get the dang disc out.
