Its a tapered bolt, you need a fork tool like you use for getting tapered ball joints loose.

This. Don't be scared to hit it hard. They can be pretty stubborn. I have the Rancho on my truck. Seems to do the job.

I beat the living hell out of mine when i installed my lift last year and couldnt get that stabalizer to break free to save my life with a fork. I gave up and got my Rancho SS sitting on the shelf yet.

So I got this from the link in this thread...

Did improve the steering. Anyone take measurements for the steering arm movement?

Monroe 2963
Compressed Length 12.500"
Extended Length 20.625"
Travel Length 8.125"

Monroe 2969
Compressed Length 13.688"
Extended Length 22.960"
Travel Length 9.312"

Monroe 2964
Compressed Length 14.000"
Extended Length 23.500"
Travel Length 9.500"

The Monroe 2964 work for the LML... So I'm thinking this will work...
