Shoe, did you remove the forks from the bike? I do, it's so much easier on the bench.
First pull the caps off to remove the springs, careful, they can fly out at you. then loosen the triple clamp bolts and slide the forks out. Clamp the caliper mounts in a vise. Pull the dust seal off, remove the snap ring, remove the screw in the bottom of the slider, an impact with an allen bit is the easiest way but sometimes they come out by hand. Then push the tube all the way in and pull it out sharply, do this as many times as it takes to pop the seal out. Then you can clean it out good, check the bushings for wear, They will show copper on the inside of the top one and outside of the bottom one if they are worn.

Bright lights, protective gear and paying attention saves lives. Loud pipes just annoy the people behind you.
