I'm doing to order the tool from Zcardepot.....looks easy on the youtube!
I bought their earlier version. When I used it the first time, they pulled right out. By "they" I mean the threads in the lug nut they used to attach to the spindle pin. The spindle pin stayed in place. Of course, it looked easy in their demo video.

I suggest two things.
1. Get an M8x1.25 die to chase the threads on the spindle pin. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09FL17V69 with a die handle https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000DD5U3)
2. Soak the **** thing as much as you can in penetrating fluid. Kroil is one of the best for this. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0036RNKCO)
3. Have a mapp gas torch on hand, and at the first resistance of the pins use the torch until you think you're about to liquify the control arm.

Also, if you have an air hammer/chisel available, consider getting a flat hammer attachment if you don't already have one. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07G55KHWC)
