If I am following you right (might not be) you are messing with the big vacuum seal on the back of the hub? I don't think pounding it straight will actually get it to seal back up.

That metal is actually part of the seal itself. You need to buy a new Knuckle Seal (@ $60) and construct a tool to reinstall it.

Ignore all the Ball Joint stuff (and tie rod disconnect) in this thread, but it has the best clear pics of what you need.
