Good luck. I suggest purchasing a drill press, A range of drills leading up to 22mm and a press. And a hacksaw...

If you're referring to the Spindle Pin, then I've made one and I'm in Sydney.

 

PM me.

Ditto 44014.

A slide hammer will only work if the spindles are lightly bonded to the bushes. Anything more and more drastic measures are req'd.

Sometimes you can be very lucky, and the spindle pin puller will work fine.
A little bit of heat, ie hand held butane torch, can help a lot!

I've also found that swift hammer blows to the body of the upright can help break the bond in the same way you can get a tie rod end out of a steering knuckle.
Still needs a press or puller though.
