Default Lower Front Ball Joint

Anyone have any tricks for installing a ball joint on a 1993 Eclipse? It is the driver side front.

Thanks

theres no real trick to doing it, but i think you can borrow a ball joint press at auto zone i believe.
do you need instructions on doing one?

Its pretty straight foreward, you beat the old one out and press the new one on. No special tricks.

what i did was, i took the swaybay off the lower control arm. take the nut off the balljoing it self and give it a wack and the arm should drop down giving you the room you need to take the balljoint out, and then reverse process for the install.
