I am just going to farm it out to the mechanics... There are just some things that arent really worthwhile doing your self..

Was quoted $90 to press out/in 4 ball joints if I remove the steering knuckle, so thats less than the shop press..
I just wanted to be smart and get the press and do the job for the same price and get to keep the press afterwards.
