Default Ball joint

Went away for the long weekend we had here, did some exploring and played on my jetski.

On the way home i started to shake a little then proceeded to get worse, im assuming its the start of death wobbles.

I recently installed new shock, tie rod and track bar because it was all getting old and worn. (its all tight, ive checked)

Next on the list i have is ball joints, Im thinking ill install the Synergy HD balljoints from DBOR while im at it, but can someone tell me where i can get a press for this?

The OTC one and adapters i see everyone talk about are only about $240 which isnt bad but then im up for $150 shipping, is there place locally than will sell em a tool that will work?

I got the same press off ebay out of US. It worked out to about $125 with freight. I think the seller was running a no reserve auction and I got lucky.

Trackbar is extemely tight, been having a look and the control arm bushes aren't great. The upper bush in the diff, looks like its pulling out of the housing.
