Help i think i pressed my ball joint too hard Sign In

Hello guys , i've been pressing my ball joint in and out on one side without problem , but today i decided to do the other side everything went ok with the fork kit to remove it .

then i used a press kit to put it back but....thats where once finish i noticed that i had bent the metal cap on the ball joint here's a normal ball joint picture and i also joined my famous new pressed ball joint that has bent a little bit on the cap :/ i hope its not too bad.....

My car is a :

Kia Rio5 2009 EX Sport

This is a brand new ball joint that look like the one i installed on the right side

A dent in the cap is no big deal. All it does it hold in grease.
