Is it possible to press new ball joints into an old center link?

I just ordered a Rare Parts center link as a number of the parts stores offer it as a special order top level center link. They wanted over $180 for it in store but I got it for about $134 on eBay or amazon. Same for the Idler arm.

I think Iíve decided to go ahead and go with the NAPA Chassis balljoints and tie rod ends as opposed to one of the kits. That way I know what quality Iím getting. Iíve heard nothing but good stuff about NAPA Chassis.

As far as pressing in new joints to the old center link I canít help on that.
