So I've got my new Flux and grease gun from Turner. Could someone please describe your method for greasing the suspension pivot points? How do you know how much grease to push in there?

Pump the grease until you can feel the grease stop going in. That's it.

Don't push anymore grease in as this will "purge" the existing grease out of the bushing and in doing so will displace the "O" ring seals (they are the green or black things you can see).

Recommend cleaning the zerk prior to greasing. It's possible to push in whatever is on top.

I figured it had to be simple, but if you've never had to do it before... thanks for clearing this up for me.

I'd add that I "cycle" the zerks a time or two by poking them with a 3 mm allen key before injecting the grease.

The greasing process really is as simple as it seems.
