Hmm I think a puller would help allot to get the drop arm off, and if you are rebuilding the ball joint on it you will need a press or at least a small drift to tap it together with. You may also need a ball joint pickling fork. Sometimes you can get away with out any special tools, other times you end up breaking the special tool just getting things apart.

There are some horror stories about getting off the drop arm. Do a search and read up on it. I would start spraying pb blast right now... Personally, mine came off after breaking 2 pullers and finally using a torch and impact gun.
