Stupid question on greasing.
I know keeping my ball joints, u joints, tie rods greased is important.
I grease them as often as it is needed, probably every 2-3 months or more in the summer.
Whenever I grease everything I never know what is a "safe" amount.
Some people say just keep squeezing grease into them until it squirts out and some people say just use two-three pumps.
Besides the tie rod boots can you really danger any of the u-joints or ball joints by squeezing to much grease through them?
I usually just keep pumping grease through ball joints until I see fresh grease protruding out through them, and same with the u-joints.
Tie rod boots I squeeze grease into them until I see grease start to pop a little out of the boot.
Is this good or am I going about it all wrong?
Sorry it is a stupid question but I would rather be safe than sorry.
