Default How-to separate the control arm from the lower ball joint?

I want to replace all the 30 year old bushings of the front suspension my volvo 740. Some have detoriated beyond recognition. I managed to remove all the rusted bolts, but now i am having trouble getting the lower control arm of the ball-joint. It's stuck and won't move a bit.

Is there a way to remove the lower control arm of the ball-joint without ball joint separator??
