Sometimes the local parts houses will loan them out. Get the" one for "big ball joints" or you'll have to use a vice and spacers to inish pressing them in and out.

I figured, I will check the Napa down the road in the morning. I got two of them out and the other two are close, but i am sure the method i am using to get them out won't work to install.

I've successfully installed new ones with a hammer several times.
Fairly easy and consistent I've found. At least so far. I've heard the horror stories...
