If its the 300e you can probably do it with a standard balljoint press. I used one from Auto-Zone for free. The ball joints are at a slight angle and I used a small pipe wrench as a mandrel on the bottom istaed of the press tool. If you don't you will never get them out. I did the on my 190E which shares a lot of suspension parts with the 300E. Give it a try if it won't budge, button it back up. I popped off the steering knuckle from the lower ball joint and then went at it with the press supporting the lower arm with a jack stand.
