    Can you flip the arm and run a 90 degree zerk on top?

    No, you still wouldn't be able to hook up a gun tip on the zerk or at least, not on my axle.

    That’s definitely the best way, takes no time at all to pull the bolt and drop the arm.

    I don't think it will work for me either.

    I’ve seen these before that are countersunk with an Allen head. Not sure where to buy them though.

    I bought flush ones to swap out on the control arms. One normal one is broke and can’t get the broken one out. I’ve had a flush one break as well.

    If you use enough lube, you can still drag nut without damaging the hole. FYI.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
