We have recently become aware of documentation that recommends that a press-in ball joint can be installed by applying force against the ball stud. This practice is 100% false and incorrect.
The only accepted practice of press-in ball joint installation is to apply the press-in force evenly against the ball joint body/housing.
Incorrect installation of press-in ball joints leads to direct loading on internal components and will result in premature wear.
