Let It soak I'm pb blaster or wd40 for a few hours the use an easy out. Youll have to drill a small hole down the center unless there's something you can grab on to.

For pre 97, I didn't quite understand why the truck would be impossible to align with the f150 front springs?

Tstuntin, have you done shackles or an AAL in the rear? Those are some relatively cheap options for the rear. But my understanding about suspension lifts beyond torsion bar cranks and torsion keys plus shackles and AALs are super lifts which are quite expensive.

Would 98 lift spindles fit on a 93 2wd?

Nope. Suspension from 1998 and newer is 100% different from 1997 and older. Nothing is compatible between the two
