2004 Escape 2.0L MT driveshaft change

I'm planning on replacing at least the front left driveshaft on my Escape. I have tried extracting the driveshaft in the past from the manual transmission when I have changed clutches, but was afraid to use too much leverage against the transmission case for fear of wrecking the case (very unwieldy to muscle both the transmission and driveshaft out of the car, which I left connected). The transmission case is aluminum, of course, and I assume stout if it supports that end of the driveshaft. Ford shows a tool in their shop manual that uses a screw drive and collet to extract the shaft. The Haynes manual shows a pry bar, of which I bought a set. What have others done?
Thanks.
