big hammer gets the job done,, I also jacked up the lower arm up, lined up the ball joint with the spindle and slowly let it down.. now to get the balljoint into the a arm we froze the balljoints and then using original balljoint nuts and treaded them so I could hammer it into the arm..

hope that makes some sence
