    Hey,
    So here's my situation, i went to lubricate my Total Chaos UCA's because the Polybushings had gotten pretty squeaky. Everything went smoothly besides the face that it felt like i couldnt grease the back zerk on the drivers side UCA.

    As i tried to force grease in, it would instead squeeze out of the few leaky spots in the gun and i never saw it squeeze out from anywhere on the UCA as i had with the other Zerks.

    Thanks for any help!!

    Did you rub grease all over the bushings before installing them on the UCA?

    It is recommended to loosen the Control arm bolt before greasing. This will allow the grease to enter the bushing easier, and also will prevent the bushings from being pushed out due to pressure. Make sure to torque the bolt back after you are done.
