    I need this tool to preload the upper ball joint. Anyone know of any stores in the SD area? I didn't think this would be that hard to find and I don't want to wait for them to ship it! I don't really have the means to make one either...

    There are a bunch of places all over Escondido and Santee which usually stock items like this. They cater to the needs of auto shops rather than the public. Try HDS in Escondido, Also give CarQuest a shot. Outside those areas you'll find its harder to find tools like that.

    My local NAPA had it on the shelf, hanging there. Lots o' dust, but they had it.
