Putting a 6" lift on this weekend, any suggestions for installing the alignment cams?

The instructions say to use a special puller 41550 to remove the sleeves and to hammer new ones in, what are yall using to remove the sleeves? Thank you for your time, I'm just trying to get all the ducks in a row prior to having it apart on the lift.

I just used the air hammer on the top of the balljoint stud, the sleeve popped right out today. I only had issues with my brakelines, I think ford torqued the **** out of them and screwed the ends of the threads up.. Had to clean them up to put the extensions on.
