Exclamation Stock steering damper bolt is stuck. what can I do?

Putting in a new steering damper on my 06 TJ but the stock bolt that goes through the steering arm (non axle end) is stuck good and proper.

Tried CRC, various hammers and hitting degrees power but unlike many instructions it just won't 'pop out'. The pin and Nut have been removed.

What can I do without breaking shit by hitting to hard?

I'm on my mobile but I'll see if I can attach an image.

Get out the hot spanner !! (oxy). Just warm around the hole. It will come out then.

Dont you need to turn the bolt? open ender on that nut. I can see where you have rounded the nut. If necessary a stilson (pipe wrench) would grip it.
A propane or even a butane torch would probably do if you cant loosen it by turning it.

Firstly I hope you are not hitting the top of the bolt?
Cause without the nut fitted you'll probably muchroom the end (making removal harder).
problem with just hitting it is the draglink will just "bounce" absorbing the impact. use a dead blow on the back.
Or remove the draglink and then try on the bench.
