Drop Link

I'm currently in the process of trying to replace the bearings in my suspension linkage but I've run in to a snag, I can't seem to remove the spindle from the drop link. Service manual say's to thread M14 bolt in and pull it out which I've done but it only pulls to the edge of the swingarm and stop's. It will not budge after that. I noticed on the underside of the swingarm on each side of where the spindle seats there are plugs, Does anyone know if these plugs are covering a locking or set screw? It looks like they would have to be pulled or drilled out. Is there something the service manual left out? Hate to do it if it's not necessary. Thank's.

Check out this thread on another forum. Get a slide hammer and use it with the M14 bolt to draw the shaft from the swing arm


See the tool created about 3/4 of the way down

Thanks stevetwood, I ended up getting it out. I made a puller, for lack of a better word, I took a 1'' diameter round piece of tube or pipe, cut it about 3'' long and put the bolt through it with some thick washers and as the bolt threaded on to the spindle it pulled out.
