Default Rear caliper issue

Had to change rear pads and the guide pins both L/R seem to be frozen. I tried PB Blaster, Heat, and a punch neither side seems to free up. For the time being I just changed the pad knowing the inside shoe will wear prematurely. I want to know if anyone either knows a way to successfully free the pins or a detailed how to on changing out the rear calipers, specifically how to deal with the parking brake assembly on the caliper. Do I need a special tools to deal with the parking brake part of the change out? I looked and couldn't find a thread on it. One with pics would be great.

pb blaster again and just throw pliers on it and squeeze the pliers with one hand trying to rotate it, and then with the other hand slam it with a hammer, perpendicular to each other, works for me

I thought of the pliers too but in the end i thought it would scratch the S*$t out of it and would make it worse in the long term. I guess at this point I COULD try that before I replace em. I ended up tearing the rubber boots off. IF I did get them free I think I will be constantly "F"ing with them. Thanks for the replys!!

Checked out the repair manual link.... Exactly what I needed THANKS!!!
