Sway Bar Linkage Ball Joint Removal on 2002 Ford Focus

I need a Sway Bar Linkage Ball Joint Removal Tool.... Anyone know where I can find one or if there is a substitute for removing this thing. I have looked everywhere with no luck.

I went there today and the only thing we could find is called a tie rod end puller it may work but I think I am going to use a tool that looks similar to a tuning fork.

The aftermarket part that I bought is thay way however, the factory part that needs replaced is smooth with notchs on either side. I think I need a tool that looks like a tuning fork.
