We recommend 3-4 pumps of grease in the ball joint and 1 pump in greaseable bushings, every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. If you drive through creaks and in mud pits, we would recommend greasing the ball joint after you are done playing in the mud and water.

As of October, 2019 we use these bushing in our first production run, JBA EZ lube bushings can handle more then 1 pump of grease at 5,000 to 10,000 mile service intervals.
