1G Front Ball Joint Problem

Florence, Massachusetts
So I pressed out the old passenger ball joint no problem, but when I grabbed the new one, it didn't press in, it just fit in all the way with absolutely no effort.

This is a Moog ball joint, and they both did it (I planned on replacing both sides so I got two)... So I drove for 2 hours to find somewhere that had a different brand in stock, JRW, and it does the same thing...

What the hell am I missing here?

I need this resolved ASAP as my car is my daily and it's ripped apart in my driveway right now... Thanks for any help in advance.
