Replacing my lower a arm.
Any tips on getting the ball joint out without a press? Thanks in advance

Find a deep socket that is the diameter, or a tad smaller, than the pressed in portion of the ball joint.

Set the socket over the ball joint pin, down onto the pressed in body and give it a few good smacks with a hammer.

The press fit is not that tight, so it will come out.

Oh, and if there is a snap ring...be sure to remove it first!!!
