Upper Ball Joint Trouble

Hello, I replaced my upper control arm shaft and bushings on my '69 C10 and new upper ball joint and new rubber bumper. The trouble is I can't get the new upper ball joint in the spindle enough to start my nut. I have tried a C-clamp and hammer and I can get it almost enough to feel a thread but I can't get it to go any further to get the nut on to tighten it up. I checked the ball joint to the old one and it's the same. Anyone got a trick to getting it in enough to get my nut on? Thank you
