ball joint flip on a 2000 tacoma

After installing 3in lowering blocks on my yode, i attempted to do a ball joint flip on the front to get a 2 in drop. I fought with the press bolts for awhile, finally get it flipped and ready to put back together to find the stock pressbolts are too short. What bolts do i need to get to make this work? Any advice would be appreciated
