In this step, I have my vice which we're using in the ball joint press and my receiver cup which is going to either screw them to press the ball joint stud into. I already have it broke free. I'm just going to demonstrate here the way it's done. I'm going to tighten my vice down. And as you can see, we drove the ball joint out of the hole into my receiver cup.
