Default Ball joint removal

My buddy is having issues removing the ball joint from the aluminum bracket. Does anyone have any recommendations on the best way to break those pieces apart. The aluminum bracket is not bent or broken, but the bottom a-arm is trashed. He has supposedly try everything except heat. Any ideas?

a puller worked for me if i remember right. i just had a cheap 2 arm puller i put the arms on the aluminum spindle and the middle of the puller on the bolt. if that doesn't work or he doesn't have one get a junk nut and a lot of WD 40 and beat it off. not many options.
