Ball Joints zerk fittings

Recommended Posts

Recently helped 66fastcarss with his Trooper and I drilled and tapped the tops of the ball joints for zerks, on mine I did the same and welded the tops back on. When I greased them, the grease would ooze out the top. On 66fastcarss', I used JB Weld and made sure I used plenty so the threads were well sealed, after it cured, I applied grease and none of it oozed out the top, I think this may be the way to go. Did NOT add any welding as I thought the heat would destroy the epoxy.

i saw your post on upgrading your ball joints to accept zerk fittings and thought you or somebody on the board might be intrested in our ball joint "upgrade" kits offered here at silverbullet. they consist of 90deg zerk fittings for ease of greasing, polyurethane boots to resist corosion from the sun, and a set of clamps to hold it all in place. we are under new management and are striving for better customer service and faster turn around time. thanks 928-344-2117
