Fat and Greasy

So what if im greasing my fittings on the front end, one fills up like a little balloon and will not poop out the old grease?

so i ended up getting a little out from the fitting, but not enought because when i went down the road and the rubber bushing rubbed against my brake rotor and split! what the crap, how can i release more of the pressure next time. is this common?

Just a little grease once in a while is better than a lot of grease once in a while. No need to over grease.

I am not sure, but I don't think there is a need to get the old grease out.
No more jeep for now
But I have free kandy and kittens in the back of my van

No offence but this is the reason auto makers say they did away with grease zerks on tie rods ends and ball joints.This is why new vehicals have no way to grease them any more.They are not ment to blow up like a ballon the rubber boots are there to hold grease in and the dirt out not to hold a year supply of grease.
I like for it to shine even thought it is muddy most of the time!

Sometimes too much grease can be worse than too little. Bearings are designed to hold only so much grease.

Smile grease

get in habit of two or three pumps of grease no more that is all they need. try to put same amount in each grease zert that way you never over fill. just a thought.
