If desoldering a crystal was difficult then I can only imagine you have a crap soldering iron.

A desoldering station is generally the best way to desolder through hole components, however a good one is going to set you back several hundred dollars.

An alternative is to cut the chips off the board, then remove each pin individually. There is still a good chance of damaging the board if you are not experienced.

Why do you need to remove all 8 chips? It's very unlikely that they're all bad. I'd suggest that some more thorough diagnosis should be done.
