Cracked bushing on driver side front differential

Good day
I installed a new seal and new cv axle on my 2005 mazda 6s (automatic transmission). I then proceeded to warm up the car to check transmission fluid level, after allowing it to warm up form 15 minutes, I shifted to through all the gears and noticed a strong light grinding noise when i went from park to reverse. But the grinding sound was the loudest when I went from reverse to park. My ignorance i thought that since the car sat for a long time on the car jacks and thats why it made that noise. when i tried to start the car it wouldnt move initially until i pres on the gas pedal strongly and took it around the block twice and noticed that when i mashed the breaks the car would stop and but still roll 1 foot and when i went up hill it struggled to get up hill until i pushed down firmly with the gas pedal. when i got back home and looked under my car i noticed a transmission fluids under the driver side and the cv axle (front differential side) boot exploded exposing the bearing and grease all over the place. I removed the cv axle and noticed that the bushing is cracked in two places and clip at the end of the cv axle had no play and felt like it was squeezed tight with a vise grip. I would like advice if i should remove the bushing and if so what tools I would need and where can i get a replacement bushing from. hopefully i can fix this problem since i can
afford to buy another car and walking to the train station is ok, until snow comes. Please see attach photos from my link thanks. any assistance would.

Ouch. That is rough. Are you saying you know the crack was not there before you replaced the CV shaft? I just looked at the '04 3.0 transmission I have in my garage. I suspect you would have to remove the transmission, chisel out the old bearing and press in a new one. I could not tell for 100% certainty that you could press a bearing in without taking the transmission case apart.
