Stock steering dampener

Tried getting my stock steering dampener off last night. Replacing it with a new one. Looks like it's pressed in on the steering shaft. Tried prying, hitting the bottom with a brass hammer, putting a wrench on the bottom and hitting that. The darn thing won't budge.

Any thoughts?

yep, as I recall that is called a Heavenly bolt because you have to beat the hell out of it to get it out.

Yep, had to beat mine like it stole something but eventually the little SOB gave up and came off. Grab a 2 or 3lb hammer and take some aggression out.

you take the nut off the bolt and hit the end of the bolt.....2.5 min... did you replace it with an aftermarket in the same location? and are you running any other aftermarket stabilizers? mounted off the axle and connected close to the drag link? i took off my factory and replaced with a dual set up.. just wondering if anyone has run duals and one at the factory mount at the same time....
