Default Trouble Removing Parts

Hi, I'm trying to remove pieces 12 and 13 from this diagram I found on a different thread, but I am having trouble. I've watched some video's and it has come out easily for these people. Could I get any advice on how to remove them?

Thank you!

That ball joint can rust/weld/seize in place and be nigh on impossible to remove. I took mine to a shop after giving up.

I managed to get it out luckily using a tool called a jaw gear puller, though it was still quite difficult.

+1 - separating that ball joint from the LCA (#8) was a major PITA.
