Stupid question regarding MII balljoints

Hie everyone

I am planing to build my own IFS based on MII components like spindles balljoints brakes etc, and manufacture the crossmember and upper and lower A-arms my self. Tubular chassie.

Now to the question:

Are the upper and lower balljoints pressed in place or screwed in place on the A-arm.

I have seen this type on summit racing:

and this type on (screw in) on Day motor sports, at least I think it is for the MII suspension.

I am confused , pressed or srewed, thats the question?

Thanks everyone

Best regards .........the dumb Swede

Most aftermarket arms have screw in ball joints...but if you are manufacturing your own...you can do it how you want. There is no right or wrong way.

Here is a selection of ball joints and housings Check this out as this may help you in your choice of ball joints and housings.

A taper reamer can solve the taper problem..Just do not take out too much material..
