Lower balljoint

I was wondering if anyone else has changed their lower ball joints on a coil spring truck 2wd. I see posts for 4x4 and air spring suspension but not coil spring 2wd. I need to change mine and I’d rather not spend 300 plus on another control arm when I could just press in a new ball joint. I attached s picture of my ball joint I’m not sure if the top is a cap that comes off or just presses through.

I don't think you can buy it as an assembly anyway.

Yeah it is aluminum, I ordered a new moog ball joint so I am hoping it wont be to hard to get the old one out. I was going to take it to a shop and have it pressed out.
