    I have the Camburg Uni ball UCA. I have been good abut greasing them and hat not. I started to hear a clanking noise. I looked around for some time and finally found out it is a bushing that is blown on my UCA.

    I want to know what can cause this? I have had them on my truck for about 1 year... I also called Camburg 2 times now and left a message but no reply? Maybe cause of the holidays?:confused:

    Any help will be great.

    Thanks, Bryce

    Over greasing can cause them to blow out, and fail. They dont need alot of grease, and should only get a couple pumps of grease every 6 months or so...
