Grease Questions

The grease fittings on the front end...ball joints, steering joints, etc. Do you just grease until it purges out, or are they not supposed to purge?

Also, my buddy said he read on a forum that you can remove the plug on non vacuum actuated hubs and replace it with a grease fitting to grease the "non greaseable hub bearings"? True/False?

I grease all my zerks to a slight purge.
Mainly I look for water/ old grease going out. As soon as grease comes out I stop.
If they are difficult to grease insure ball is not rusted.
My Thuren track bar is such a tight squeeze I cannot grease it while it is in the truck!

In regards to wheel bearing.... I cannot help you there.
