Turn off the fuel, put the sled on it's side, hit the treads with a lot of wd40. Then use a screwdriver in one of the notches and a hammer to knock it loose. Take your time and don't hit it to hard. It will eventually free up.

There aren't any threads in there. The block slides onto a shaft and a fastener cap is pressed onto the shaft to hold block on. As mentioned though putting some type of penetrating oil will help it turn. I usually lift long leg of spring out of its holder to release s[ring tension and then use 13/16" socket or spark plug wrench to turn the block. Can either do it flat on ground or tipped on its side.

My bad. I thought he was asking about the shock coil over, not the rear torsion springs.
