What happens when you let metal rub on metal? There'* a real good reason why they put grease zerks on ball joints. General maintenance is a good thing.

I you are not properly maintaining your Bonneville, it is you who is failing her. I grease my suspension every time I do an oil change. That'* just basic maintenance.

I've seen neglected ball joints, not a pretty thing. I've put grease in and watched water come out. I even worked on a truck that had dry balls and I could wiggle them around, thought they would pop right out. Talk about dangerous.
