Up & down movement is controlled by the A-arms and the shock. So do you mean your shocks are locked up and won't compress? If this is your problem then you just need to replace/rebuild the shocks and this has nothing to do with your spindles. And if your bushings are stuck in the spindles, I assume this means you got the spindles out of the trailing arm. If so, the bushings are plastic and real cheap....so if they're stuck, just break them off the spindle and replace them. Or do you mean the spindles are stuck in the trailing arm?
Not sure exactly what the problem is to be able to help you.

I tap a thread into them then screw in a bolt. Using a punch, drive the seized ba$tard out the other side.
