Default How to put in ball joints

I jus bought new ball joints for my 89 lx 5.0, and so far ive got the wheel and caliper off, then i believe i need to take the shock mount off of the spindle with 2 15/16th bolts, but they are so stuck my impact wrench jus slips, then once i get it off or if i do then do i jus take off the spindle and pound out the old ones and press in the new ones? also any suggestions besides lots of wd 40 and pryin at them 2 bolts?

I've never done them on my own, so I can't give you any tech advise, but tell me that you've got a press to push the ball joints in, because that'd be a bitch of a job otherwise
