Ball joints

Unread post by Sundawg3 » December 8th, 2023, 10:10 pm

Guys,

I'm assuming my ball joints are original and haven't been greased in close to 60 years. None but the lower right have a grease zerk. Seco advertised four new ball joint with grease zerks so I bought them. None had fittings. Luckily I was in Augusta, yesterday, and was able to exchange the four for the lowers with fittings. I still need two upper ball joints with grease zerks. The only place I can find them are in Czechoslovakia but they won't ship to the USA. Anyone have two upper ball joints with grease fitting they want to sell, or know where I can purchase?

The newer style ball joints have not fittings and very likely, once you changed them, you most likely will never need to replace them again.

Andrew,

Wanna send me some ball joints from the Czech Republic? Thanks for clarifying, I watched Stripes about 30 years ago and Czechoslovakia stuck in my brain.
