The AZ tool would have been fine if, and its a BIG if, the AZ tool would have fit flush on the outer lip of the ball joint.

The $90 tool that you need to use with a Hydraulic Press is now a $99 tool; in the 1st pic and the other tool in the 2nd pic is over $300.
The $99 tool comes with a big punch to drive out the Ball Joint.
