That's what I ended up doing, and it worked for one side. I'm having trouble
with the caliper on the other side, so I've doused everything in WD40
(again) and I'll try again tomorrow before work.

Thanks, Marques!

> Take some liquid wrench to the area and work the contol arm from side to
side. Then try beating it off with a mallet. If that doesn't work, use a
wooden dowel or even a screwdriver at the edge of the control arm and beat
it off that way.  Just needs a little elbow grease.
