lower ball joint problem

OK
Iam in the process of replacing the ball joints. all smooth except for one small hicup. part K3137t moog lower ball joint.

the Zerx fitting is too tall, the U-joint from the axle hits the zerx. So much to the point of the axle will not turn.

The ball joint IS pressed to the lip that it is susposed to and the zerx is threaded all the way as far as I can get it in to the ball joint. thus I do not belive that I screwed up the install.
Does any one have any ideas to remedy this problem?

The ball joint should have come with a blank block off. The grease it up, remove the fitting, and screw the flat top fitting in. You cant grease it once the axle is back in anyway. It's pretty much a really low profile bolt that replaces the grease fitting.
