Go to supercheap or wherever and get yourself a ball joint separator.
Or get two hammers, put one against the upright on one side of the ball joint, and hit the other side with the other hammer.

Put a stand or a jack under the lower arm. Something strong and sturdy.

And if you dont care about the ball joint, smack the f**k out of it on the thread side. Smack the sides of the lower arm where it fits in a swell to help loosen it.
