96 taurus. replaced front front right ball joint and I could not get on the snap ring (cheap tool). I went ahead and installed spindle and all thinking I would have shop put on the snap ring when I did the alignment there. they tell me they have to take off spindle to put on ball joint's snap ring....which is too expensive and it is a pain to do myself. is there an alterntive one can use in lieu of a snap ring that can be put on without pulling everything apart or even just removing it from the control arm?
