Keep whacking at it. 20 times is nothing. I think I wailed on mine for more than an hour before I got the #%(* thing to come apart. If you can borrow a ball joint separator from your local auto parts store that might work too.

Other people have said that heating it with a torch helps, but I didn't want to try that since I didn't know what I was doing.
