Got everything but the steering stabilizer in yesterday. I had a coupon for the HF 20 ton press for $160, so I thought I'd go that route. Like most tools, you get what you pay for. I put shims on the sides of the traveler, and that minimized the play, but there is still movement, and movement on a shop press can be a very dangerous thing under full load. I spun the bottle jack sideways so I could pump it from the side...very nice since the aluminum press tool is right at crotch height should it go flying! The arms aren't flat, so shimming the arm and making sure the press plates are all in the right spot are essential to a safe and effective process. The arms themselves swapped out like butta.
