Method 1; remove the cotter pins, and put a socket between the joints (see attached picture) back one of the nuts off until it pushes the ball-joint stud out of the arm.. you may have to use some washers to take up the space between the nuts and socket..

method 2 (aka the lazy man's way )

just take a hammer and give the spindles a few sharp blows (not super hard, they are aluminum remember!) right on the red dots, should be enough to break the taper-lock between the spindle and ball-joint stud..
