Lower strut pin removal

I'm trying to put my lowering springs in, but I can't get the lower strut pins out. I have the strut removal tool, but no matter how much pressure I use it will not budge. I'm assuming that the pins having rusted themselves solid to the bushings inside. Has anyone else run into this problem. If so, I would be sooo grateful for some advice on this one. Thanks

Apply PB Blaster daily for a week and try next weekend. Or get a bigger hammer.

PB blaster is good stuff. You just have to give it time to work. and when you have pressure on it, don't be afraid to give the strut a good whack!
