You have to remove the bushing and sleeve from the right hand side of the picture. Then the cross shaft will slide far enough to the right for the left hand portion to clear the bushing. Then you can pull the shaft out to the left.

If you are just swapping to poly bushings, heat the edge of the sleeve until the bushings pop out (it will pop out in a flaming ball of rubber, so plan accordingly). Then clean and install the poly ones. No need to remove the cross shaft.

You have to remove the bushing on the right side of your photo, slide the shaft part way through the right hand bushing hole until you can remove the large washer on the left hand side of the shaft, then remove the left hand bushing and pull the shaft out from the left hand bushing hole.

Edit: rats... that damned guru guy beat me to the punch!

This is how I do it.......first, remove the nuts & washers from both ends. Next, burn out the old rubber bushings. With the bushings out of the way you can push the shaft through (from left to right) and remove it completely. Once the shaft is out of the way you can press out the bushing sleeve (unless you plan in installing poly bushings). Be careful when pressing out the sleeves.....the UCA is easily bent.
