I think tool trucks probably have something worthwhile (for 5x price). The bearing puller special tool I got for trans work had a larger thread than any slide hammer I've handled. I got a decent hammer but had to weld a bolt to one side or the other to adapt as needed.

This is what I used a lot at my old work. It works really well and strong. Although the price is hard to eat.

this one? http://www.harborfreight.com/heavy-duty-slide-hammer-and-puller-set-16-pc-63268.html

I bought this one and promptly returned it. I couldn't get it to really pull parts off because the slide weight isn't much and no handles to really grunt on it.
