REMOVE
1. Remove the spindle and ball joint assembly from the axle. Refer to Spindle/Service and Repair.
2. Install the spindle assembly in a vise and remove the snap ring from the lower ball joint. Remove the lower ball joint from the spindle using C-Frame Assembly T74P-3044-A 1 or equivalent and Receiver Cup D81T-3010-A or equivalent. Turn the forcing screw clockwise until the ball joint is removed from the spindle.
3. Assemble C-Frame Assembly and receiver cup on the upper ball joint, and turn forcing screw clockwise until ball joint is removed from the spindle.

NOTE: Always remove lower ball joint first.

CAUTION: Do not heat the ball joint or the spindle to aid in removal.

Did you ever get the ball joint removed?

I rarely suggest using a torch to release it but in your case, that be the answer.
