Was greasing ball joints and tie rod ends today and discovered that the right rear ball joint will not except grease. Also the grease zert is spinning around like it needs a exorcism
Is that normal ? should the grease zert just be spinnning around like that ?
At any rate I can't get grease in it. The ball joint is totally dry. This explains the sqeaking noise. A couple of questions.
1. Is there anything I can do to get this joint to except grease ? It'* so bad that I can't even compress the handle on the grease gun.
2. If I replace the ball joint how does it come out ? I know on the front you have to do the rivet removal deal, is the rear riveted too ?
3. If I replace the ball joint whats the deal with the spring ? Do I need to compress the spring so I don't loose my front teeth :P
I searched the site, but couldn't find much about this topic. As always...thanks guys !
