Hello guys
I ordered the replacement spring from Temple Performance for my 97 LSC, but is there a trick to taking the hinge apart? There doesn't seem to be any retainer on the hinge rod, but it doesn't want to slide out from either end.

For posterity:
I ended up using a 3/32" punch and small rubber mallet.

The punch goes in the back end of the hinge, and drives the rod out the front.
