Exclamation CANT GREASE TF SWAYBAR LINK (broken zerk)!!

I was installing the Teraflex leveling kit on my JK today and broke one of the stupid zerk fittings off while screwing them on. I have tried to removed the broken zerk from the threading for the past couple hours with no success. I was able to install the zerks and grease the other three bushings, but obviously cannot grease the bushing with the broken zerk. I'm afraid i may just have to buy a new link

Question: What will happen if i just dont grease that one bushing? is the worst case scenario that i wear that bushing and have to replace the swaybar link (~30$)? I am thinking i may have to replace it anyways since i cant get the zerk out, so that being the case, will i be ok to drive around with that one bushing not greased until i can order a new one? My buddy said that the worst thing that may happen it could start to squeak, but that there is no reason to really panic or rush to replace it, especially being that the stock ones were not even greased at all...

Thoughts? Thanks!

Yep, easy out will do the trick. Not very expensive and always good to have a set in your garage.
