SY250 Rear Shock Removal

Trying to get my bike trial ready again after a 10 year lay-off.

How do you remove the rear shock on an SY250?

I'm assuming once the bolt is out, both external spacers need to come out before the internal ones can be knocked out of the swing arm bracket. But could be completely wrong.

I've removed the external spacer on one side, but on the other it's completely stuck - not sure what to try aside from WD40, hammer etc

Any help would be appreciated.

I got the shock out - for future searches, use a flat head screwdriver under the bottom of the shock and pry it upwards. You don’t need to remove the bushes.
