Pipe wrench to hold the bushing and impact. Mine were rusted solid to the bushings, I had to grind the heads off.

Do what you think is best, it is your braking system.
Heat gun worked just fine!

I had trouble on those too and I was working by myself. I found channel locks will not stay on and it is hard to heat them. I ended up using vise grips on the small outer lip and when I turned the bolt the vise grips would jam between the body and not move. This would hold that sleeve from turning and the bolts eventually came out, but it was not easy. I had to keep re-clamping the vise grips, but it worked.
