rear ball joint

has any one replaced the rear ball joint to the top link? had the old one pressed out already and new one pressed in. the ball joint is tough to move around in its socket, is this okay or was it damaged when i had it pressed in?how would i torque set this nut?

It should not be tough to move.. It should move freely. How was it pressed back in? Did they use a big socket to go on the outer flange so no pressure was on the actual joint? I did mine liket htat with no prob.
