How to properly fill an sway bar end link with grease?
First time with a grease gun and I can't tell when the link is filled but not overfilled. A grease monkey friend said it was easy - just don't overfill it.
The link was replaced last week but we didn't have a grease gun for the install. I've been driving it with just the factory grease since then. The joint wasn't filled so obviously I need to do that ASAP.
I had another new end link ready for the other side which we didn't use so I tried to get a feel for filling it. I filled one end of the link until grease started escaping the zerk and thought that was probably right until I did the same with the other end and the upper boot made a popping sound and now it looks kind of like a donut while the other end doesn't feel like it has grease in the upper boot.
Is the top part supposed to be filled and look like a donut or did I overfill?
