I'd use one of the screw type separators - they're the most efficient when there's clearance and also would not subject the other ball joint to any harsh loading. Additionally, make sure that the ball joint mounting points are clear of the subframe, one side uses a sleeve to help center the holes to the subframe. This may be constraining the ball joint as you're trying to hammer it out.
