    Uppers MOOG, only ones that are greasable...

    The upper's on Moog have grease fittings on the side. All the others hace a plug/scrap! The lowers are $25 from GM. Cheaper than Moog! Just put one Chinese in mine, then figured out to try GM. DUH... :eek1:

    Can you see the side hole? I positioned one fitting forward and one rear, but not too far, check clearance from knuckle. Grease both w/o turning wheel. Doesn't have to be at 4: o'clock, 3:00 is good. Will post pix... I also had some longggg grease fittings. No idea where I got them from.

    Carquest and they come with a lifetime warranty (just don't lose the reciept)

    Moogs are better alone on there zerk design. The upper joint has the zerk off to the side so you can always lube them.

    Here they are...

    Wheel cranked left, drivers gr fitting points forward, pass side gr fitting points rear! Makes the job so much easier...
