If you have access to an air compressor there is a tool that looks like a gun and has an interchangable fork tip on the end of it. The fork part beats the living hell out of the perch going from top to bottom of the strut and leaves a nice edge where the weld is. I wish I could remember the name of the tool. It took about 10 minutes to remove all 4 perches.
