I’ve been stockpiling parts, and as part of my CRXtravaganza of Service, I’ll be adding some new bushings. Since I’m cheap, parts are impossible to find for first gen CRXs, and I don’t have a lathe or a bunch of delrin laying around, I’ve opted for the favorite motley villain of the tuning crowd: poly bushings from Energy Suspension.

Since poly bushings need to be greased regularly, I’ll be adding some zerk fittings. I have never done this. The above video, featuring the man with the cigarette in one hand and a drill in the other, working at a bench opposite the wall with the freezer chest where he keeps the bodies, is the best video I could find on the subject.

Have any of you installed zerk fittings? Any tips? It seems pretty straightforward. Thanks, Oppo. Stay chrome.
