Ball Joints Differences and Tolerances
Ball Joints, Differances In Tolerances, 123

This is how I got my Ball Joint back in. Some members have don the same but used an Pneumatic Impact wrench to do the turning of the Bolt on the C Press.
It requires removing the Ball Joint Boot and would be better if there was a washer between the C Press and the Ball Joint (see the Red Arrow in pic 1).
After the Ball Joint started to stick out of the bottom I had to use the Pipe I had enlarged to 2 inches ID to press it downt further.
It might be that one of the Tubes that comes with the C Press might have worked; but the Pipe was on the Counter from another project so I used that.
