Thumbs up MB Ball Joint Press???

Okay, okay... this thing can press them in but is it also used to aid in removal of the old joint?

no, to remove them i use two hammers, one brass and the other steel and drive them out. hit the brass with the steel. usually they come out without much difficulty

I put the piece in a vice and use an old socket the exact size of the ball joint that I hit with a hammer. Comes right out.
