I have this set from Harbor Freight

You have to use your head to figure out which parts to use for each ball joint.

Thanks Travis that looks ideal just a shame harbour won't international ship.

I guess I need the master OTC kit to get the correct spacers?

You will need the master kit to get all of the correct spacers no matter what brand you buy.

If Amazon will ship internationally I would get this set

MUZ, is this just a once or twice used tool? Or do you plan to crank these BJ's out and make some money? The problem with the OTC style kits, is you need 6 pairs of hands to hold all the adapters. The Snap-On BJP1 all locks together. It's a ton more money, but you'll pound them in and out like no tomorrow with it. It also has a flat spot to put in a vice to bring your work piece to the bench.

I agree! The snap-on press is the sh*t, hands down but does cost a good coin.

It's not going to get a huge amount of use, the Snap on kit here comes in at $920... Do any of you guys know the part number of the Snap on adaptors I would need to do just the ball joints? as buying the frame and just the adaptors I need would be affordable for me

I would ring SO up and ask. They only list 2 adapters for the 2500/3500's
