A bit of heat might work if you dont plan on reusing the shock. Have you got a better pic of the lower stud, nut etc?

The nut has to come off, along w/the wedge/spacer (circled below). Then the shock should come right off w/a little prying. The wedge may take a rap from a ball peen hammer to come loose.

The shock will come off reasonably easy - the stud will not (usually). Get the shock off first, then soak the stud 1 to 24 hours in one of the 'miracle' rust releasers such as PB Blaster (WD-40 just isn't worth while anymore). Maybe hit it with a little heat for encouragement, but not to change the axle color. Regardless, you have a good chance of destroying that stud, but a BFH may be your only friend in the end. I did a couple '48 axles and that was the only way anything moved.

(Just wait until you need to remove the wishbones)
