Hey alll. .

Is there a special way to grease up your front lower & upper ball joints? ..

I Think mine are sweaking a bit .. guessing thats what the sound is,

Only think left to replace is the radius rod bushes ..

umm..... if they've got a grease nipple, pump a lil bit in, not too much tho

if they wont take any grease, take the weight off the wheel

They are just the standard factory ones, (old eh?) Don't really wanna have to replace them (HATE PRESSING BALL JOINTS!) ... where abouts do you grease the factory ones from? ..

Where abouts is the nipple? ..

if they're the factory ones, they most probably wont have a grease nipple

take a look on the other side of the ball joint from where the shaft goes into the spindle, if there's a grease nipple, most of them are within 2 inches of there

dont bother, if you can actually get any grease in there, it's effectiveness will be questionable
