Hi Guys, I searched previous posts to try to find info on removing upper ball joint but didn't have any luck. Bottom ball joints came out real easy, just removed the bolts. I remember a post several months ago where someone gave advice to go to a machine shop to get them pressed back in. I see the thin metal flange around it, crimped in different places( I assume this keeps it in there) but I don't want to go like a bull in a china store and break this metal flange in an attempt to remove the ball joint without asking for advice first. So, not fully understanding what I may getting my self into...should I attempt this myself OR do you just recommend that I buy the replacement ball joints and pay a machine shop with a press? I don't mind using a little elbow grease and getting dirty but the older I get, the more I try to figure in the aggravation factor, especially if I need special tools. Thank you for your advice!
