I did the grease fittings. Yeah, it may not be necessary, but what is a quick shot of lithium while I am under changing the oil. It takes two seconds, and I will never have squeaks.

By the way, I was told I was the first to request the links with zerk fittings (patting myself on the back).

The guys at Bwoody said they hadn't had the request before. Two days later it was listed as option on their site. I have them on my wrangler and I have always liked being able to shoot some grease in it (keeps things quiet in the ol' rattletrap wrangler).

I think they did mine in a hurry, because the placement of the upper fittings on mine were in crappy locations. I posted a few pics about a year ago when upgraded my GY Runcraps.

mine are not greasable however when i installed them, i coated everything in a good quality water resistant grease in the bore where the bushings go and all over the bushings themselves

grease nipples will have the endlink drilled and tapped for a 3/8 grease fitting to screw into. nothing a guy with a drill and tap couldnt do in an hour if he has the parts especially if youre just painting them

just extra piece of mind, grease them without needing to remove them however i havent had an issue. for my lift kit on my truck where its always moving i grease them weekly but i baby the truck.

just coat everything like crazy in a good grease and assemble

How do the bushings come out to drill the link itself?

I just installed mine today along with the Eibach Pro Kit. Bought the grease fittings and you just screw them in the pre-tapped holes. Don't know if I'll ever need them , but for $25 bucks, like others have said, peace of mind. I also painted mine prior to installing, and you can't really see them unless you look really close. The only thing I would say is buy new washers for the front links as you use the existing OEM bolts and washers. If I had known that prior to installing, I would have also done the bolts too, as they were pretty rusty.

pop the middle steel insert out and then pry out the bushings, they just press in from the outside, easy peasy
