Default Ball joint question

Trying to replace the ball joints on my PT Cruiser, I am in a time crunch here, I thought I could get the ball joints and tierods done in a day, I have an alignment booked for friday. I cannot figure out what way I am supposed to press the joint out, I have rented a ball joint press tool, does it press out towards the body or down to the ground?



Edit: watched some youtube videos, hit it with about 40 gallons of air through a nice AC Delco Impact wrench, and shes pressed out!

Can anyone recommend me a grease for tierods + balljoints?
