    how are they made greaseable?
    i tried drilling and cross-drilling some bolts with the flush needle type nipples sunk into the heads to be bash proof but the bushings are tight enough that the grease wont flow. are the bushings fluted or something?

    The bushings have grooves and ridges in them to allow passage ways for the grease to flow.
