Re: 'Bout to blow my brains out....
Really not a huge issue to do them yourself. Just have to be a little creative/resourceful.
For the LCA inner bushings, I use bolts that are just a little shorter than the space needed, and then use a nut on the end of the bolt that can be turned to take up the slack.
On the UCA inners, I have a section of 1/2" (or 3/4", dont remember) black pipe that is cut to length, with plastic caps on both ends so not to scratch the paint. I have another cut to length for the LCAs.
For the ball joints, I took a ball joint with me, along with some measurements, and went to the plumbing section of the hardware store and found what I needed. Don't remember the dimensions off hand, but just a large coupler, ground a little to fit, and another to fit the other side.
Another tip: When replacing bearings, dont throw the races away. They can work very well for different applications in a press.
I have a plastic bin attached to my press with all different kinds of races, plumbing fittings (that were bought for specific uses/sizes), large washers, etc...
