steering stabilizer

Can anyone help steer me in the right direction... I'm trying to get my steering stabilizer off, I need to keep all hardware intact to be able to reuse it... I can get the bolt closest to the tire off with ease but the other one, not so much, my new stabilizer should be here tomorrow so I wanna get a head start on it. Thanks in advanced yall!!!!

I didnt think about fancy tools like it what I did mine and I tried to replace...
I tried heating with torches, and caught the bushing on fire...

when we did mine, it was literally one good hit from the hammer, and the thing surrendered.

Spray it with PB blaster and crank the puller down. Wait a few hours and spray it again. Then hammer on it. Mine flew out and smacked the oil pan like a bullet.
