I just got my 03 Cobra A-Arms in the mail and have a quick question about the ball joints.

If you squeeze the boot there doesn't seem to be any grease in them...but there is no grease fitting on the bottom???

Am I missing something?

Really, cause it feels as if there is no grease in there at all.

They aren't real stiff either...but they are those "low friction" ball joints.

The balljoints are permanently-lubricated, Teflon-lined joints. These are not your father's balljoints.

Alrighty...just wanted to make sure.

Should I be able to move it from side to side with relative ease?

There should be significant resistance. Like 1-2 white knuckles, not just fingertip pressure.

The balljoints on my '00 (I'm ASSuming they are of a similar type) required a firm effort to move them from day 1 (well the first time I took apart the car) until I removed them 7 years later.
