  • rubber boot on grease nipple

    I was greasing one of the nipples and it started squirting out. There is like a hole in the rubber boot. is there anyway of doing a quick fix like with an adhesive? I will fix it when it gets warmer out. dont really feel like fixing it in the freezing cold. Its on the sway bar. Can the rubber boot be bought seperatly from the nipple part or is it an all in 1 thing. 01 tj. Thanks.

    I can't for the life of me figure out where there's a zerk on the swaybar, but I wouldn't worry about it at all. Just pump in some fresh grease occasionally and forget about it.

        no way you can fill the hole, since its got grease on it, nothing will ever stick. just overfill it repeatedly

          I'm assuming that it's not an outright tear. Otherwise, I believe it's supposed to be that way. it gives you the ability to cycle fresh grease through all you chassis lube points. My wife's Tahoe is the same way. I pump till I see new grease. It comes out in a very deliberate stream.

                Not going to work. Just keep it greased up and don't worry about it. How about a pic of this grease boot that's got a hole. I still haven't seen a greasable sway bar and won't believe it until I see it. I've seen the geasable disconnects, but they don't have boots.
