I take it you've gotten the drain bolt out from the very bottom of the fork tube assembly. There is a small "clip/retaining" ring that holds the seal in place, make sure that's out, to get the two assemblies apart, you have to basically keep pulling them apart with some considerable force to get the guide bushing out from the bottom assembly.

If you spent that long & it still hasn't budged, machine shop might be the way to go. I know at first I wasn't sliding them apart as hard as I needed to, but got it after about 1/2hr.
