Or just unbolt the control arm and it will go in, then just line up the control arm again and re-attach.

push down on the bar and push the knuckle towards the car and the ball joint stud should fall in. this is my one-man technique.

Part of the threaded portion is successfully in the hole of the a arm, it just wont fully seat itself. I tried jacking underneath the a arm and tapping the knuckle, but it just wont go all the way in. I didnt attempt to remove the a arm last night. It was already late and I have early days. When I get home today Ill get right to it (as long as it is not rainigng too hard).

Make sure you've done that, if you haven't it should be a lot easier once you have

I also noticed my left rear axle seems to incorrect (outter joint is different, where it meets hub looks different, doesnt look flush at hub, that tire is almost seperated on the inside, but outside has good tread). Ill post pictures of that before I get back to working on the ball joint.
