With all the bolts holding the thrust arm loosened, bang on the top of the arm with a hammer, and it will pop off the ball joint. The thrust arm is so beefy, that I highly doubt it would cause any damage. Furthermore, if your doing a complete replacement of the arm and bushing, it shouldn't matter if you damage it (though you wont) anyway.
