Are they real short? Chances are you've just got them oil locked (this may not be the right technical term). if so, just pull 'em as hard as you can. Just as you give up hope, they'll free up.

It might be something else, of course. When I helped my mate Jimmy do his springs and oil (well, I say helped, I bossed him around while he did the work- I was still on crutches) he got one fork thoroughly stuck, took ages to free it. Then he did the other fork, and did he do the exact same thing? Course he did...
