Broke a 3/4" breaker bar trying to get top Ball joint nut off!! LOL

Anyone know what that bottom star nut is at the bottom of the ball joint nut?? is it a lock nut? do I need a special wrench or whats the skimy? do I need it when I put in my new ball joints? I got all Moog parts. also the Radius arm bushings look like a *****...any tricks?? were to support etc Thanks in advance This is becoming a project man. but well worth it. the good news is the bearings and needle bearings all looked great was surprised!! would post a pic but have no idea how to post one on this site...........found out its the Camber sleeve but its wasted.
