Greasable ball joints

Does anyone have any input on these?
http://www.roverparkboys.com/defender/axle6.shtml

I like the greesable, but I'm not sure about not running a streeing dampner. Is there a source for just the greesable ball joints?

I use them on mine and I think they do last a hell of a lot longer

If those aren't actually DAPs steering rods they sure are a copy, the photo is the same as the one on DAPs website.


I just installed these on my Series Coiler, I have been driving it on the road sans dampener with no problems. For wheeling, especially W/O power steering, I am adding a dampener by welding a bracket to the frame and clamping the drag link like on a disco.

I haven't been running them long enough to say weather they last longer or not.

How much are they? If they are the same price as stock and you have to replace yours, then I would do it. But if they are more, or your thinking about it as an upgrade, seems like a waste of money to me.

The boots can be purchased separately if they get torn etc. Those joints DO last longer and the ones in that picture are available individually also- that picture is a Bearmach stock pic. The ball joints come from Bearmach and are military spec. Roverparkboys are not Bearmach distributors, so I'm not sure why they are using that picture.

FWIW I've been buying greasable tie rod ends from DAP for about 28 years.

for those of you using these, how often and how much grease should I pump into them? Does the old grease get expelled? Is it possible to overgrease them? Thanks
