You need a ball joint remover to separate ball joints from the knuckle. You can loan it from places that rent out tools.
An unorthodox way is to use a bar and hammer to bang on the lower arm around the ball joint to loosen and remove.
The following link should be helpful.

I got it apart after using a pickle fork, an impact chisle, sledge hammer, etc and finally got it apart. The rust here in West Virginia is too much for me. I think I'll go back to New Mexico :)

Some ball joints are stubborn, especially when it had not been touched for extended periods and coupled with rust, it can be a real nuisance.
Glad to know you have fixd the problem.
Have a nice day.
