Not exactly for sure, I would go with what ever one would wedge the best, just use your perception. If all else fails and you have a air hammer I always use the bit that looks like a blade it will hammer the top notch off then use a skinny bit to knock the stud through the hole. The fork wedging idea is pretty good also.

BTW, your removing the ball joint from the knuckle and control arm not the hub.

find the one that fits????? and pound it out
most likely one is for a tie-rod end and one is for a ball joint

haha, once you take the castle nut off the tie rod end or balljoint one light blow with the mallet will knock it apart.
