It's time to do the rear ball joints on my E39 does anyone in the GTA have the tools...specifically the proper diameter fittings to pull/press the ball joint out of the suspension. It's a long shot but I gotta ask... . BTW the ball joints are the same for the 528 or the 540.

I think you can get the same BJ tool from Princess Auto for about $80.
