The dealer's answer (if you are interested).......
The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm and has a tapered stud for attachment to the steering knuckle. The ball joint stud is attached and locked into the steering knuckle using a special nut. The ball joint is a sealed-for-life type and requires no maintenance. If the ball joint is defective it will require replacement of the entire upper control arm.

take a 3 to 5 pound hammer strrike the center link around the outside circle where the idler arm goes through three good blows usually does it. alternative use a tie rod/ ball joint seperator available at any good parts store. a hammer always worked for me

You can replace them seperately,but they need pressed out and in. Other methods of removing and installing likely will damage control arm.
