I would set the boom on a sea container or something that you can rest it on to get under the boom to access the pins on under the boom take the hydraulic lines off to relieve the pressure on the cylinders the easiest one to get out will be the ones on the boom the bottom pins you may have to heat the frame around the pin to get them to come out let me know if you need anymore help.
