They are a swine to fit. Some have resorted to removing driveshafts or lowering the subframe to get them in. First time I did mine I was convinced they couldn't be right, the originals came out so easily, split lower balljoint, undo the four bolts and wriggled it out.
Would the new one go back in? Would it hell. It's been a couple of years since I did it, but I definitely remember I didn't have to either of the above, I do remember putting a jack under the brake disc/hub and lifting it up.
Are you doing it with both wheels off the ground and the ARB drop-link disconnected?
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
