Its tough, but I cut the old factory ball joint in half to get the lower half out of the control arm and the upper half cut and air hammered off the knuckle arm. The replacement did not involve any rivits, just nuts and bolts.

The tools needed are a air hammer gun, air gun, a cut off disc tool(grinding disc), a pry bar, wratchet and various sockets for installation of new ball joint.
