I just got a set of J & M LCAs and they didn’t come with grease fittings. Should I drill them and put some in or don’t worry about? I figured maybe they didn’t come with them for a reason. I don’t know.:confused:

If they don't have grease fittings, don't go adding any! There should have been some red synthetic grease that came along in a little tub or tube, apply that liberally to the outer surfaces of the poly bushings (unless they're not poly bushings :dunno )and you sir, are all set. Have fun!

The bushing design completely seals the grease in. The inner spherical bushing does the actual work. The 2 outer bushings are there to dampen any NVH and the real nice side effect is the fact that they seal the grease in. Just make sure to pack the grease in there real well.

You're welcome. :)
I ran through the same questions when I installed my CHE Performance LCAs last year. Even bought a grease gun before the parts arrived.
