Separating ball joint and steering knuckle

Hi all,

I have my car on jack stands, and everything appart on the passenger's side front A-arm. I am having trouble getting the steering knuckle and ball joint appart. I got the nut and bolt off that pinches the ball joint in place. Any advice on how to get the steering knuckle off of the ball joint?

Also, I used a "fork" and mini-sledge hammer to get the steering tie rod off, the presses I rented did not fit. Is using the fork a problem?
