ball joints or tie rods should come out make sure you have the right sized fork
i usuly just hit the housing with hammer ware the stud goes through a couple of good hits usuly brake it loose
try that than fork again
what ever you do DO NOT HEAT THE JOINT UP !!!
it will blow appart like a bullet trust me i have seen this happen very dangerous
