There is not a coil spring on this set up. You will want to have a jack under the lower control arm. When you loosen the castle nut, leave it threaded on about two turns. Then hit it hard with a hammer. This will allow it to come loose without being out of control. If this is a original ball joint, you will have to buy a new control arm with ball joint. Its cheaper anyway, plus you should get new control arm bushings with it as well.
