Default Link pivot balls

I am replacing some of the pivot balls on my scx10ii honcho with brass pivot balls. I was curious what is the best method you have found to "press" these new pivots in?

Some shock tools have a little pin to press in or out the ball ends.

I use one from hot racing.

I use a socket that is bigger then the hole but not the rod it self and push on it.

Yep, a shock pliers is a must. It helps to install and remove pivot balls as well as holding shock shafts without damaging them when building shocks. I use the Protek.
