My OEM S4 service manual says:

Remove rear wheel.
Remove vert cyl exhaust pipe.
Remove lower bolt of shock linkage.
Loosen the pinch bolts.
Remove at least one of the circlips.
Using a drift, drive the pivot shaft out.

Don't lose your shims....

Any more questions, let me know & I'll check it out.
