A-arm Grease fittings or zerks?

Anyone put grease fittings/zerk's in their A-Arms? Just wondering if anyone has done it yet. I'm going to take mine off and drill and tap holes for them.

DO NOT! As of 2012 they no longer use a bearing...they use a rubber bushing. It needs no grease as it just flexes the rubber. You put petroleum grease in there and that rubber will dissolve. Just leave them alone. Grease the lower shocks though..they still need it.

Interesting. They use a solid rubber bushing on the inside of the A-arm and not a metal sleeve? I'm talking about where the long bolt goes through the upper A-arm.

They have a sleeve but it is rubber vulcanized to it. Here..review my video. The uppers are like this and the lowers are just smaller.

Thanks, good video. Yea, that is different that they have that one piece bushing instead of bushings on the ends and metal sleeve in the middle. Good to know. Thanks!
