if they have the blue ball joint boot they should have a zirk fitting. i can't remember if i had to put it in or it if was installed. The other arms with the clearish boot don't have that fitting hole.

i cant image a hole in the upper balljoint for anything other than a zerk fitting. Mine have either had the hole with a zerk or was sealed.

Mine came with the fitting in a small bag inside the box. The fittings just thread into the hole using a wrench/ratchet, nothing special needed.

Pretty big newb here. I'm just curious, how often should I be regreasing these things? I installed the Moogs maybe 5k miles a go. Also how do you know how much grease to put in. Initially I just filled that sucker up. Figured too much grease couldn't hurt, just make a mess
