I believe the suspension arm pin is held in place by a metal pin mount....one in front and one in back of the diff housing.
at the very least, you would have to remove the front bumper, and then unscrew the front pin mount from the diff housing (should be just 2 screws)
I believe the white parts you see are the pin mount bushings....these allow the pins to move freely within the pin mounts. They will come out of the pin mounts once you remove the mount from the chassis.
