You mean you can't split the balljoint?
If so what sort of splitter are you using? I did mine today with a tuning fork splitter, wasn't worried about damaging the rubber boots as that's what I was changing.....after damaging the boots the last time I used a tuning for splitter to separate the balljoints.
I assume you've got the car on axle stands, remove the long bolt through the wishbone and suspension strut fork if you haven't already done so, use a jack on the wishbone to lift it and the hub/upright so that gravity is on your side.
Try splitting again with whatever tool you have. I'm going to invest those scissor jobbies.
All the best
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
