This is W124, right? I have not personally worked on that model but I
believe the front end is very similar (if not the same) to W201 which I
have the experience.
The ball joint can be pressed out, but is difficult for DIY. You either
have to invest a good (which means expensive!) tool, or take down the
control arm for a shop to do it for you (may need alignment later).
There are sellers on eBay selling new lower control arm + ball joint for
W201. The price is around $100, but I doubt its quality.
