Exclamation Cannot remove pinion from housing!

Ok, I Recently found out my pinion seal was not operational anymore and also the front pinion bearing. While inspecting this problem, I opened up the cover to see that the carrier was susbtantially ground in to by the pinion. So I decided that it was time for a complete rear end rebuild. And since I'm going all out, why not go with 4:56's? It is after all strictly for coal mining and mudding. So as the disassemble takes places, everything is going smoothly until I get to the pinion. It just will not come out. I'm
Under the assumption that the front bearing got so hot without any lubrication that it has seized on to the pinion shaft and will not allow it to come out. I have a fear of cutting into the housing if I try to cut the bearing so the pinion shaft will be allowed to be knocked out the back. What do I do? Or am I just doing something wrong and over looked a step? Please help!
