    What chair do you have?
    Try some PB Blaster (available at car parts store, wally world.) Turn chair on its side so, oil can run down into the inside of the pin. If that doesn't work get some Freeze-off. Its at some car parts places, but not all. Read the instructions on it. If you cut the pin, you will have a bear of a time getting it out.
    Can you grab the nut on the push pin end and turn the pin to see if its corroded into the axle housing?

        You might be able to take the left side off, insert a long dowel rod into the camber tube, and use a hammer to beat the pin out of the right side, from the left.

            It takes time for penetrants like WD40 or the better ones like PB Blaster, Inox, Corrosion X, Penetrene to get into the gunk and soften it so the balls can drop inside axle.

            You'll be best to soak the whole axle in kerosene or petrol for a day, and make sure you clean all the gunk out of the axle tube with denatured alcohol. Then coat axle lightly with oil (not WD40 as that attracts moisture and dirt) then reinstall it again. Remove weekly for a couple of times to ensure it stays functional, then monthly clean is advised. A bit of maintenance on our equipment beats trying to fix bit that get jammed or lost. Same with bearings - better to replace earlier (when they start to make any gritty or grinding noises) than after they fail and leave you with a jammed wheel bearing. Bearings are cheaper than most people think.
            Glad you got it all loose.
