so i changed the drivers side ball joints...

on my 2000 ex 4x4 because they were binding. but the new ones are in the same bind. the passenger side is firm but what i would think to be normal. the drivers side takes all i have to move it. i am fairly certain i got the ball joints seated completely. anyone have any insight as to why this is happening?

for those who are curious what the problem was. i did not remove and reseat the camber sleeve. after popping the knuckle off and removing the sleeve, i cleaned it and it's bore. then i greased it and tapped it back in, leaving it a bit high so when i tightened the upper ball joint down, it would seat properly. now it's all happy and working like it should.
