    try a little wd40 for some lube. But there realy is no trick. Just Push. They are very hard. I usually set them on a box end wrench and just push hard. Try taking a hammer and give it a whack.

    Set the ball on edge of a bench and push shock end down onto it with a nut driver, that fits over it. That's easiest way I've found. Good luck!

    the easiest way is to use a pair of pliers to force the ball end into the plastic.

    Glad it helped. They are easier to manufacture package and ship separate. And usually you break the ends before the pivot balls.
