    OK, had new ball joints installed on the truck. Uppers and lowers. Asked for greasable, but they only installed greasables on the uppers. There was a lot of screaming. After looking at the lower joints, I noticed a indentation where the grease fitting would go. Can I drill and tap these joints and install my own fittings. Would like to get as much life as possible from these. Please help if you have any ideas. Thanks guys!:usflag::usflag:

    I don't know what year your truck is but... I just did left front ball joints pn my 94 f250 3 weeks ago. The lower ball joint kept the grease fitting. I put the fitting in the upper one, greased it then put the retainer screw back in the hole and secured it. Because of the way it was mounts, I would not have been able to access the upper fitting any how. Hope this helps!
