what grease do you use here?
Hey you tried but you need to go to school and learn a few things. What was that you said? That was packing the bearings? No, that was a poor job that will not last. And you picked up grease off the workbench? I guess that is ok if you don't mind metal shavings and other dirt in your bearings. But you tried. Oh! And don't hit the end of the ball joint... NEVER! You hit the side of the arm to break it loose. Better luck next time and don't forget to sign up for school. Daughter of mech for over 40 yrs.
