I would rather see the zerk right where it is.
If the stud portion of the ball joint has a tunnel down the center, there goes the strength. (compared to a solid stud.)

If you have a problem getting the grease gun on it when its on the bottom of the "cup" portion, then take your tires off. If you are already greasing up everything, why not open up your hubs and clean those at the same time.


BF-
Would these carry any kind of warranty? Dont need a timeline but to know that if something happens that they can be replaced would be a big deal.


Keep it up..

You're talking a couple percent of the cross sectional area for a gun drilled grease channel.

After looking at the drawings, we've decided it would be best not to drill the studs. These joints will require routine maintenance to keep any play out of the joints and this would be an opportune time to remove the plug and install the grease zerk anyways.
