How to remove rear leaf springs on an '87 SWB

Spring removal questions for SWB Gen 1 owners

I am trying to remove the broken rear leaf springs on my '87 Montero SWB.  If you have done this, how do I get the old mounting pins out, or should I reuse them and the old rubber bushings?

Thanks.
Frank

 Should come right out, maybe with a little twisting. If it's rusted in place but it might take some penetrant and a sledge.
