Angry Can't remove spacers!!!

A Year ago I put on a Rough Country 1 3/4" spacer leveling lift, apart from the fact it didn't level the jeep it's an ok product for the price, after adding a skid plate I wanted to level my jeep, as it was 3/4" to 1" lower than the rear so I brought some Terraflex 2 1/2" front spacer. And planed on putting them on today!

Well got the wheels off, the jeep jacked up the front coils off, and went to slip off the RC spacers and they wont budge past the lip on the bump stop tube. Tried a pry bar, enough lube to last in Vegas, and these things are not moving.

So apart from cutting them off how in the heck can you get these off?

Will post pics in a while!

I just removed my Teraflex spacer a few weeks ago. I pulled the bumpstops out first then used a big screwdriver to pry the spacers out.

Maybe you need to pull the bumpstops first?

Does the bump stop tube look bent? if it's egg shaped at the bottom take a clamp and straighten it out or see where it's hiting the spacer and file it down a little?
