on a ball joint it is on the top on the upper control arm

on the lower arm it is under the lower one facing the ground.

on a power ball there should be one on the side of it somewhere.

sometimes they dont get put in for some reason or another so just remove the top cap lift the cylinder and grease your balls by hand

wd-40 stands for Water Displacement-40 . it will work as a temporary lubricant. but its not even close to what you should be using. you need grease

i zerk fitting is a fitting thats going to screw into the base of the powerball mount and alow you to snap your grease gun on it to grease you powerballs.


its not rocket science bro, but you really do need to do a search instead of starting all these stupid ass topics and slowing down the server

some didnt have fittings,like cce one's i had,you would have to unscrew the top piece-take out the ball and just grab some grease and put it in there then put it all back together

i bought a bunch off e bay just like that.


if you grease it real good before you put it together you shouldnt have to grease it anymore, the grease will probably out last your cylinders o rings
