Beating Around the Bushing and Having a Ball (Joint)

Not easy. I could’ve bought complete control arms, but only in off shore brands. So I’m using all AC Delco parts and saving a couple hundred bucks in the process. Not everything was worn out. In fact, the condition of the ball joints is a testimony to giving them a shot of grease diligently every 5,000 miles. Preventive maintenance.

The challenge has been getting the ball joint pressing kit to get along with my particular application with the bushings. The uppers will be the greater challenge to press in because of the control arm shaft going through the middle.
