    I have a 2015 DC pro and was wondering if or how you grease that ball joint since there is no zerk for it?

    Might be able to get a very thin angled needle in there to grease it, between the bolt and boot. I have a spare set of LCAs sitting in the garage to help me figure out a way.

    I bought one of those needle adapters to try the same thing. Looked up online and some say to puncture the boot with the needle and put in grease. I’m a little confused about that as the needle isn’t exactly a tiny needle and worried about the hole left behind or will that not affect the boot?

    Yeah, I agree, not sure I want to put a home in the boot. I'll take a look at what I have when im in the garage tomorrow.

    Right on. Thanks. I’ll try and lift the boot with a tiny flat head and see if I can get that in there, but if you find an easier way, let me know. I’ll try tomorrow as well

    Any write up's on greasing the lower control arm ball joint? Just did my UCA's and feel like I should do tops and bottoms. Or what did you guys decide
