Steering stabilizer attachment to steering link

Is this just a press fit like the tie rod ends or is it threaded in? I'm guessing it's a press fit, but I have a ton of force on my press and it ain't budging. Got the swaybar end links off with a loud pop, but this one doesn't want to go. That's why I'm wondering if maybe it's threaded.

Heated her up with the propane torch and put the gear puller on it. Loud bang and the next thing I saw were all my tools on the ground. Unbelievable. Nothing needs to be THAT tight.

Whack the side of the drag link with a small sledge, it will pop out after a few hits. The first time I pulled my steering apart I used a puller for the first few components, then switched to the hammer which was much easier

Guess I got lucky with mine, came out with a just a few love taps from a hammer...no puller/pickle fork needed. I did have them handy just in case though...

I always try that first since it's easiest. I think it's worked once in the 20 or so times I've had to disassemble joints such as this in my life.
