I posted a recent DIY on Xi control arms and bushings here: The content about the outer ball joint is similar I assume for non-xi's.

Don't use a pickle fork unless you're replacing the control arm. You'll ruin the boot on the ball joint. If you want to reuse control arms purchase a decent puller/separator as others have pointed out. You might also be able to get away with something like this, but again, go with the right ball joint separator.
