Lower ball joint lubrication
I'm putting front ball joints in. The right side lower is completly shot at 88K miles. At last years state inspection, the mechanic told me of it and while he showed me the movement, I thought it was just minor and I would get around to it (like over this past weekend
) sometime. It is a flopper with no resistance. I don't know (think not from what I've heard) if a fitting has enough room and after initial lubing, it should be plugged. If so, has anyone gone though the exercise of pulling the brake/hub/axle on any periodic basis to put a fitting in and lubing it - and then putting it back together?
