    - The front end weight is on the upper ball joint, not the lower. The lower just goes along for the ride and locates the bottom of the spindle.

    Grease fittings are inside the little dome on the end of the upper control arm so they are not a factor in wheel clearance issues. The ball-joint bulge can be an issue with some wheels though. 14X7 steel painted magnums will hit this bulge due to the extra backspacing they have over 14X6.
