Dang I f'd up my lower ball joint, what now?
I saw this ball joint tool and "not hindered by any kind of knowledge" bought it and put it on my b13.

After destroying the lower ball joint boot with that, I learned that I should have used this type of tool.

Now I assume that just replacing the lower ball joint boot is not an option?

Can you point me to a tool to depress and press a lower ball joint? Those joints lower ball joints are like $5 but hammering the old one out did nothing.

So I removed both wishbones and brought those to a friend with a decent press and a large hammer and told him hammering lower ball joints on b13 wishbones works and it worked.

But the tool in the first topic is what FSM recommends. Not that I read that I just saw this 15 coins tool and thought by myself, hey for this kind of money I want one. After destroying two lower ball joint rubbers and one tie rod end rubber with it, I learned about this tool.

Also quite cheap 18 coins and 6 coins shipping. But I just ordered it for peace of mind, no real plans to use it yet.
