    Was just talking about dropping my control arms to grease them up the other day. This is a perfect solution. I know what I’ll be doing on Christmas break. Thanks Eddie. Another great write up.

    Maybe a dumb question but hey, I'm still learning to work on my jeep myself. Is there a specific kind of grease that's recommended?

    Pick a good waterproof grease and go with that. Its kinda like the "what gear oil is best" question. The fact that you're actually doing it puts you ahead of probably 90% of the people out there.

    Edit: I use this from Tractor Supply - its $4 or $5

    Over the years, I've tried all kinds of different greases including high end expensive ones. What I can tell you is that Currie recommends a good moly grease for their Johnny Joints and I have found that it works well.

    I have RK arms and a factory Dana turdy. Here's what it looks like with drilling a 1/4" hole. Works perfectly with the low profile zerks.

    It was kind of interesting getting a drill in there. For those of us without a lift, I decided to use one vehicle ramp on the opposite side I needed to drill after disconnecting. Granted, I only have a EVO leveling kit, so those with more lift may fair better.

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.
