So far so good
Ive had them on for a few weeks now without any issues. They were a lot cheaper than an auto parts store and good quality.

Do you need to grease the ball joint? Mine came with a nipple accessory.
AARON S April 6, 2019
This ball joint has self contained grease so you do not need to add grease to it and there is not a fitting on it.
