Re: anybody ever heard of this
I was really disappointed with my '00 GM, when I looked at the steering/suspension. Not a SINGLE GREASE ZERK! My '98 Ford van has tons of them! When my ball joints went out on that, my buddy got the new ones from NAPA, and he made sure they came with the option with grease zerks. Of course, he put them on the parts. It's so sad to see shops that will not put them on, as I know it's just more revenue for them, when they go out again. I am surprised these cars last over 200k, with the lack of grease!
I did see that the car also has sealed 'hubs' (rotors are independent). The question I have, is are those bearings in the hubs greasable? Can you take it apart like an 'old fashioned' car, and repack the bearings?
