It helps if you freeze the balljoints for a couple hours in the freezer. They dont just "slide right in" like they say they will when they're frozen, but it definately helps...

I think the next time I'll try freezing the balljoints and heating the A-arm...maybe then they'll just "slide" in!

no they sure don't slide in or out easy but a big f-in hammer got them out and a 2in piece of pipe and the same hammer the went back in

I usually just use a deep well socket and a BFH and they go in pretty decent
