Help with Bushings!!

I ordered BMR front lower control arm and front radius rod bushings the other week and I'm trying to get the arms out of the spindle. I have tried everything to get the ball joint out but I can't get it out. Can anyone help with tricks or something. I tried loosening the nut the the tip of the bolt and hitting it with a hammer, hitting the spindle to try and knock the joint loose, and tried a tool for ball joints. It hasn't moved an inch. What do i do?

I used a Kent Moore tool #J-38892. See this thread...

I had to use a longer bolt on mine and also heat on the spindle with a hammer. It was a bugger
