Sounds like a perfect angle of attack! just wipe all the grease out first. If struggling with prising, keep upping the heat until something bad happens to the nylon cup and it comes out one way or another! Worth having some water in a squirty bottle on standby...
Brute force and ignorance as I used to tell the apprentice at the garage 😂

Any down and dirty tricks for removing the Nylon knuckle joint cup from
the rear radius arm when the hole into which it fits has rusted
internally?  I changed out the entire right-hand side rear suspension on
my '81 last weekend and it took me almost three hours just to get that
stupid cup out of the arm -- plus another hour or so to remove the
rubber cone spring which had seized itself to the Adjust-a-Ride
trumpet.  There's got to be a quicker way to do it.

Before I attack the left-hand side, after I drain and remove the fuel
tank, I'd like to see of there's an easier way to remove that Nylon cup
from the radius arm.  I'm thinking maybe I could hit it with a heat gun,
on a low or mid setting to keep from melting it, in order to make it
more pliable.  Then I might be able to wedge a small screwdriver between
the cup and the arm hole in several places.  That would give me enough
room to spray some penetrant into those areas to, hopefully, dissolve
some of the rust before I start trying to pull and pry it out.

Your thoughts?!?
