I just took mine off after 2-3 years. Anti-seize was used but it's still a bitch on MS spacers w/o the slot. I used WD-40 but being impatient, I didn't let it soak in long. The front ones were easy as I could put a small screwdriver in between the hub & inside beveled edge of the spacer & pry. The back ones were a pain as I had to put a socket extension against the holes in the spacer & hit it with a hammer - spinning the spacer until I could get room to pry. I'd have to file down the edges on one of the rear spacers to use it again. The other three came off w/o damage.


You can see the pry marks on the inside beveled edge below & the damage to the rear spacer. It looks worse than it feels.
