napa machine shop pressed out old and placed new, including seals for $50. noticed a tear in ball joint hood - replaced those in the past year - so replaced it with a napa supplied "555" (think of colin mccrea in a blue subaru with 555 on the side in yellow) ball joint. had the tic tool. then on to merchants for my 3 yrs worth of alignment for $189. all done.

evileye i'm jealous of your press. god&sme the motor isn't hard to get to so don't replace.

Just detailed with mothers back to black and spray n wipe.
