Zerk Fitting Challenge

Hello all,

Feel kind of lame posting this, but want to ensure I am not screwing up my new install.

I just installed the OME BP-51 and Camburg UCAs on my 4R. I have had a difficult time getting grease to go into the zerk fittings and am not sure how to tell if they are indeed taking grease.

Any tips would be appreciated. I am not driving the vehicle until I am confident I have this completed correctly.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you, DougR. Your Google-Foo is much better than mine!

That link was super helpful.

Loosen the upper arm bolt when greasing.
