Comes with a set of long and short bolts. The shorter of the supplied bolts stripped out. I only hand-tighten using skill of the craft, and have never had this happen before. I'll buy replacement nuts and bolts - because I don't trust the longer bolts now - but I'm not happy about it.

              the bolts stripped with about 20 lbs torque had to replace with good bolts. Hope the ball joint quality is better then the bolts supplied

                        A:

                        Yes, the Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint - Part No. DW-K6292 comes pre-greased. However it also comes with a greaseable socket design which allows new lubricant to flush contaminants from the assembly, reducing corrosion and wear. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
