Either way (jack, wood, BFH or the correct tool) these thing have been in the car for nearing 50 years and will be difficult to remove.

When reinstalling----the must start in the holes absolutely square.
Not too difficult to crack the control arm upon reinstalling (done that).

I'd suggest removing the control arm and taking it to a machine shop to do the dirty work, but removing and reinstalling the springs in these cars can be a pain in the hiney.
