Depends on how rusted it is. One nut, prybar and a hammer should do the trick.

Buying this car after knowing all common problems feels bit sadistic, but then again, my main income is from growing potatoes in arctic.

Personally I would just replace the ball joints as it’s easy and cheap enough to do them.
