I recently removed the lower ball joint from a 91 Civic, hopefully it is the same as yours. You need a fairly large double jaw gear puller. Loosen the castle nut, but do not remove it. Place the jaws of the gear puller under the boot of the ball joint (be careful not to damage the boot). Then place the screw part of the puller on the end of the ball joint bolt and tighten the puller as tight as you possible can. Then use a blunt punch and hammer to hit on the lower arm where the bolt goes through it, it requires quite a vibration to jar the ball joint loose. Good luck.
