I spin the spindle pins with my impact wrench, then use a slide hammer....the free rental slide hammer from autozone. it's still a struggle...you have to keep switching from one tool to the other.
Part of the struggle come not from corrosion, but from galling around the slot in the pin where the wedging lock pin went. I discovered this when I had a huge struggle removing a pin that I had just installed; it had been cleaned up and greased and slid right in but I still had a helluva time getting it out a few minutes later; it was just as bad as the first time.
