Use an impact wrench to break the nut loose. The sudden shock will usually break it free before the balljoint spins. If the balljoint spins, put a pickle fork between the spindle and the arm, then try again to loosen it. If the problem is that the balljoint won't seperate from the spindle, put the nut back on to protect the threads and tap it with a hammer to break it free from the spindle.

Not trying to be a dick, but in this picture you should be hitting the spindle where the balljoint goes through it. Do that while pushing up on the uca, and it should pop off a lot easier. I've had a bit of experience with balljoints, lol.
