2004 EM2 Civic Energy bushings problem

Hi Everyone,

As the title explains, I've run into a wall re-assembling the front end. The control arms with the new bushings are installed in the subframe but I can't get the ball joint back into place. Currently, the knuckle is loosely bolted (both bolts) onto the strut and the sway bar end link is disconnected. Those bushings are incredibly stiff so I can't push the the control arm down enough to clear the 2 inches required to slip the ball joint in.

Can anybody with experience chime in on how it's done?

Thanks in advance.
