Ok i got it... i was not expecting it to be quite so tight i guess. got a larger c clamp than what i had and seated the ball joint pretty well. the pinch bolt went through w/ no issue and everything seems tight. new tires and an alignment tomorrow first thing. (was hoping to get both done today... not so much) cutting alone was well over an hour... plus a little bbq in the middle.. ~5 hour job.... an hour for cutting and an hour for that ball joint... the rest was just me being slow... Very Happy
