Have you found any of the vendors that make them with grease zerks?
I've considered pulling mine off and drilling/tapping and installing my own..

Len,
While you have your coach in the air, I would recommend replacing all four ball joints, the eight tie rod ends, and the most overlooked item in the steering area, the four bushing that are in the pitman arm and idler arm brackets (two per bracket).  That is what I am getting ready to do to my coach.

My source for the bushings was Rockauto:  http://www.rockauto.com/en/partsearch/?partnum=K8094

My source for the ball joints was Car Parts Discount: https://www.carpartsdiscount.com/ball-joint.html?3593=36095  These fit a 1960 Cadillac and are made by Rare Parts in Stockton, CA. Mine arrived today.

There are many other sources for these parts as well.  I think I am coming to the conclusion that replacing ALL of the above parts should just be considered a "50,000" mile maintenance procedure.

I haven't had a chance to closely inspect any of that. I did notice in my huge stack of receipts that some of these items have been replaced but this falls into the "Future Len's" problem column, "Present Day Len's" problem column is full up..
