I find that ball joints that come without a greese fitting, (I know, go figure) can be easily drilled and one added. They are susposed to be permently sealed but when you relpace an old one without the greese fitting, it's always dryed out from the seal going bad then the greese goes. With the greese fitting, you constantly flush out any dirt trying to work its way in.

As Lenny said, it's easy to drill & tap a zerk into the end, personal feeling here, drill the hole off center a little bit. You'll need to grind the weld off if it hasn't brokent loose already like mine did, unscrew the end, drill and tap, zerk, screw back on and reweld. The idea that they are sealed is bunk, when I grease mine, the grease comes out the through the threads, if grease can come out, crap can go in.

However, personal opinion again, I wouldn't recommend doing the lower ball joint because you'll probably knock it off on a rock. Just pack some grease in under the boot.

      I'm not trying to trample flatbeds post about the front ball joints being able to pull out. I just couldn't find his post to reply there. Sorry flatbed. Flatbed found that the bolts holding the ball joints in place weren't close enough to the ball joint stem to fit into it's groove, thus the ball joint could work it's way out. This happened to flatbed and Kinarfi. It could be very dangerous if this happened at the wrong time. I finally got around to checking mine today. The top of the ball joint on the front left had already pulled out 1/8". The bottom one was still ok. I did as flatbed sujested and drilled them out and refitted them with new bolts. Both joints on the right side did not need any work as they were secured ok by the original bolts. To reiterate what flatbed said, be sure to address this potential failure. Just redo them and don't wait for signs of them pulling out.
