Sorry, I tried posting on my cell phone. I'm geting ready to do my lower ball joints tommrow, and the few threads I've read they talk about removing a snap ring, and pressing it out the bottom of the arm with a press. my question was regarding the installation. Do I press the new one up through the arm? Im guessing it will be self explanatory I was just being sure. Trying to gear up for it tommrow. I was just confused on how I'm going to press up something with a stud and not a flat side, and how much pressure is needed.. maybe it will make sense when I get the tool from auto zone.. Im going to now..
