I don't want to ruin the alluminum and I have tried everything, almost!!

A flathead doesn't work and just ended up destroying the part of the seal.

They are in there good and won't come out, what do I do??????

Did you remove the circlip?
Slide-hammer type of action should prevail if so....
Are they on or off the bike?

Edit:....

If they're off of the bike and the fluid is still in fork assy., with the circlip removed you canmallet-whack down the tube and the fluid will pop it up... Wrap a rag around the tube at the slider so you're not covered in fluid. I now realize you've probably disassembled at this pointthough. I'm moving slow today....

Onward... Take coat-hanger pieces and form a somewhat spring-loaded treble-hook thingy with the ability to tie a piece of small rope on the eye end. Make sure the "hook" portion is as parallel as possible to the inside as you can guesstimate before inserting it. Tape the "hook" portions with vinyl electrical tape if handy. Once inserted, pull tight to a stop, slack the line and then give a smart snatch. Tie a good size wrench to the end of the string and use a hammering motionin the opposite direction of the slider. Should pop out....

Hope this helps.
