we just tighten up the nut and it draws the tapered part of the ball joint into the spindle... anybody do anything differently?

Do you have an O'Reilly auto parts near you?
They have a free rental program that has a ball joint press. You have to leave a deposit for the value of the tool( something like 250 bucks for this one) use it for a day or two and bring it back for a full refund. Works real well if you have a credit card to put it on.
