Oh wow sounds like a pain with getting them re-greased. How do they get re-greased, uninstall everything or install grease zerk fittings?

Bushes had to be removed and re-greased. I dont think they would cause so much trouble with subframe ones as they don't move or sping much.

I found more pics on the group, more people installing them. This red paint must at least add +5 horse power too.
