Default How do you replace the lower ball joint on a 1992 Honda Prelude?

I dont have 250$ to buy the tool, can i do it any other way?Ok were just going to take the whole knuckle off and use a bend mounted press. i have done more complicated things than this, just hoping there was an easier way out. Thanks to thoses who posted useful information.Ok were just going to take the whole knuckle off and use a bench mounted press. i have done more complicated things than this, just hoping there was an easier way out.

1)take off the lower control arm and press it out using a big vise.2) go to harbor freight and buy the ball joint press for $45.003) use a air hammer with a dead blow tip and drive it out using downward force. all of these have been used by mechanics at one time or another

if your asking in the first place you shouldn't attempt this, but if you really feel the need auto zone and the likes rent or loan them with a deposit, but remember this could be a safety issue and I'd feel a lot more comfortable driving with you out there on the road if you would let someone do this that didn't have to ask. savvy?
