I punched the first one out from the backside with a punch like you have in your picture, then knocked the other one out with a socket on an extension.

(I was not planning on re-using them, obviously)

You could probably heat up the fork and get them out a little more gently, too, if you're not choosing violence today.

I figured as much. They weren't coming out as quickly as I would have hoped given the amount of penetrating oil and heat I was applying to the fork.

Ended up getting a better suited drift and added a bit more persuasion.

Got it.

Thank you!
