    You do have to put a little muscle into it, it will come apart

    Just make sure to remove the drag link and linkage first, then give a good pull.

    You can use a pair on needle noose under the bearing (not on) to give you a little more surface area to pull on. Those guys can be on there pretty hard!

    Pry upward GENTLY with a thin flat bladed screwdriver, working all the way around each column a little bit at a time.
    The whole assembly will come off without removing anything but the two top screws. The bottom bearings will probably stay in place but you remove them the same way.

    I had to do it again Sunday to replace my front bulkhead and front dif case after hitting a telephone pole at 30+ mph in a jump gone bad! Servo saver did a **** of a job, as one wheel was cocked all the way over and jammed. Back up and running in about an hour. Thank God for the parts bin since LHS is closed from Saturday at 4 until Tuesday noon.
