My set arrived yesterday evening!

I'm planning to put them in this weekend. I would have put them in this weekend, had they arrived soon enough!

I'm super excited about these

If they have a grease fitting it's a 10 second job.

Up until the mid-70s or so, pretty much EVERY moving joint on front end suspension had grease fitting with rubber retainers.
And if you changed your oil any shop worth it's salt greased all of them,
and they therefore lasted indefinitely. But for any number of reasons everything became sealed over the years, nd failure rates went up correspondingly.

Pick your poison... no grease fittings and shorter life, or 20 seconds maint per joint during oil changes.
