89 SHO RH Axle shaft replacement question

I'm removing the tired righ-hand axle shaft/CV assembly from an 89 SHO and have come to a stumbling block. The shaft was disconnected from the knuckle and then I pulled on the shaft and it pulled the inner boot off this thing that looks like a cup (the three rollers ride in this cup. Now my question is: How the heck do I get this cup off? I assume the new axle assembly will come with a new cup. This cup is on another shaft that comes from the transaxle. Any help appreciated!

The "cup" can be pried from the transmission with a large screwdriver .. but I have never felt the urge to go that far. I usually leave that part alone and just replace the shaft from the tripod assembly down to the wheel spline .. the transmission "cup" (outer race) recieves little wear so my opinion is that getting too close to the transmission is tempting disaster.

If only the CV joint is shot, you can limit costs by "knocking off" just the CV joint with a brass driver (rod or pipe) while holding the shaft in a vise (use soft material to cushion vise jaws).
