Default Good machine shop in chago for ball joint pressing

Does anyone know any good place in chicago to do a ball joint press. A place that doesn't charge too much but also really good doing them.

Depending on what your version of "not too much" is, it might be more economical to just get one of the cheap hydraulic presses from Harbor Freight for under $100.

Go to your local parts store and borrow the manual ball joint press. It looks like a big "c" clamp with various sized cups that act as recievers. Works like a champ!
