Tip for those needing low profile Zerks

I installed new ball joints in my JK. The lowers came with a 90 degree zerk that wouldn't clear my axle shaft u-joint due to the height of the zerk.

I found these on McMaster Carr and they work perfectly. Of course they could also be used in other applications too, and they have many others as well.

Under "Flush-Style Grease Fittings".

I ordered "C", the 1/4" - 28 UNF. Box of 5; shipping was $5.00.

What BJ's are you running. And even with the flush can you grease them assembled?

I'm running the O-Reily's "Master Pro" joints. Yeah, I know, but at $120 (for 4), and greasable, I couldn't turn them down.

I can grease the lowers with the flush zerks, just had to buy a 90 degree grease gun attachment. If you rotate the front axle, there is a sweet spot on the ujoint to allow greasing. It's tight, but works.
