Hi All.

I'm going to be doing a lower ball joint on the 67 98 soon, and that means getting a press. I've been looking around, and I see a few on EBay for the $35-50 range, and another $10 - 15 for shipping. Most of what I have seen in catalogs and the like is in the $100 range, so I was wondering two things.

First, are those ebay prices good, or am I just looking in the wrong place?

Second, the receiver cups all seem to be standard sized, so what size will I need for the Olds? Just don't want to buy something which is designed with the newer, wimpier cars in mind and find out it is too small for the Olds.

Thanks
Dave

If you have an Auto Zone nearby, go in, give them $100.00 for a press. It comes with several size cups and when you're done, return it. It is a free service from Auto Zone. No, I don't work, nor advertise, for them, but I have gotten "loaner tools" from them at no cost. The $100.00 is just a deposit.
