Buy the balljoints from Langdon 4x4, then take the uprights off the car and let a garage replace the balljoints for you. A local garage only charged me ten quid, and had them back same day.

That's where I got the joints from I just didn't want the pain of taking the hubs off
That was all I would just rather pay a someone that knows what they are doing

If you were close I'd have done it, it only takes about half an hour to take one off. Hopefully someone will offer to help, but to be fair any garage should be able to do the job easily enough. You're allowed to drive a car to a place of repair so long as it's for the MOT.

Mine wouldn't come out with the uprights on the car, they needed pressing out. It's easy enough to let a garage do it.
