Call me a tightwad, I'm but having trouble springing for a $250 tool to put in these $20 ball joints my dealer says are shot. Wonder if one of you BimmerWerkers might be willing to let me borrow the press tool, or maybe sell yours reasonably? This is the tool with several sizes of large concentric hollow cups and a threaded rod that allow them to pull together- joints can be pressed in/out without removing the carrier from the car. Any hope or other adivce? TIA, Bob
