How to remove spindle bolts

Hey guys, I'm (stuck in the middle of) lowering my '15 V6. I watched a video from CJ Pony Parts about installing the Steeda 1" springs, and for some reason I just can't get the two pressed spindle bolts to come out of the spindle/strut. In the video, he used the nuts to hammer the bolts out, but that hasn't been working for me. In the meantime I just put everything back together until I have more time to work on them. Any suggestions for how to remove the bolts? Click image for larger version

Once your car is secured on jack stands, use your floor jack and pick up on the controller arm a little to take some tension off of the bolts. Should tap right out.

Yep, what Bigshow14 said worked great. It was kind of a pain to find the sweet spot with the jack but once I did they came right out

1" drop courtesy of Steeda. I love the new springs! I'll probably look into some wheel spacers once I graduate college in May and actually have money haha
