A pry bar of some sort to tension the suspension downwards helps, since the bushings try to keep the arm up when it's at full extension downwards.

That kinda negates the bashing you're doing on the knuckle to move it downwards.

I got it done doing both at once when I pulled the old ones to install my SVT suspension....

Luck!
