With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Nothing needs to be pressed in. Remove the UCA bolt, and the ball joint bolt on the spindle. THEN, put new arms in place, re install UCA bolt, and tighten Unibal nut on the spindle to between 87 and 99 ft- lbs.

i've heard that it can be a HUGE PITA to get the stock UCA off... to the point where people were cutting it, using hot/cold treatments...etc. may be too much to try and do "real quick"????

I havent heard of these issues. I would think the worst case would be to simply loosen the body mounts, and jack the body off the frame a couple of inches to get the clearance.
