Steering Stabilizer Help

I bought a new stabilizer to replace my OEM unit, when I remove the bolt from the pin on the drag link the pin will not come out. Do I need a special tool or does it need a good beating? I lightly hit it with a hammer a few times but did not budge. I don't want to screw it up.

Not sure if it matters but I have an 08 F250.

From my experience, put a propane torch on it for a minute or so and then pop it with a hammer and it will come right out. Without the heat, it really doesn't want to move.

I have the Rancho OEM replacement. I'm running stock tires so for now the dual setup is not needed.
