Does it really take 45min to press a ball joint into a control arm? I’ve been calling around and everyone want’s $50 for it. One shop said it takes 45min to do. But I’m pretty sure that’s bullshit. In WA there was a NAPA that would do the exact same thing for $15 and it took them like 10 minutes.

As for why I need a ball joint pressed in. I got the second control arm off the car, but one of the bushings is cattywompous and the bolt won’t go through. Since the bushings are good on the old one I just bought a ball joint from Autozone and am looking for someone to press it in.


Update Edit: Nvm I’m stupid. The new one’s are like that too. I just didn’t notice until I looked at the old one’s.
