The tapered fit of the ball joints can be a pain to loosen. I will typically hit the steering upright on the flat that is to the inside of the upright. If that doesn't work, then you may need a pickle fork (U shaped wedge type tool for separating ball joints). Problem with pickle forks is that the use of them can damage the ball joint. Not too much of a problem if that is what you are replacing, but if you are not planning on replacing them...
