i replaced my ball joints back in january. now they are squeaking and i think its because they have no grease fittings and i go in the woods alot. i think i washed all the grease that sits around the ball joint. am i right or am i retarded lol now should i soak my ball joint in grease or should i get grease fittings... can i even get grease fittings for the ball joint??

Replace the ball joints with ones that have grease fittings. If you don't want to do that you can do one of two things. 1. go to the parts store and ask for greese fittings and have a shop install them. 2. get a grease gun with a needle soo you can inject grease in through the boot. But I still think just replacing them would be better. Get either trw or mooge don't go to the dealer. Oh yea ball joints don't squeak they make popping and cracking noises.

well than it must not be the ball joints cuz its def. a squeking it happens alot when i turn but the sound only comes from the passenger side and it sounds like it is comin right from the ball joint. i know they crack and pop cuz i replaced them back in jan. but like i said thats where it sounds like its coming from and it doesnt sound like its the prings or anything. i really need help on finding the problem and i dont feel like taking it to get looked at cuz im a girl and they will try to screw me cuz they will think i dont know anything lol.

You should replace them with Polyurathane ones. I had the same problem on my Super, but it was the Sway bar doing the squeaking.
summitracing.com has them for $46.

...I know it sounds crazy but spraying wd40 all over the tie rods and struts and shocks will usually silence the squeaking
