Maybe this will help- sound like you need the same set up.

Hondaman, I just checked out your link and that is exactly what I'm going to do. My question to you is why do you say to make sure the grease holes are not at the top of the shackle set up??

Lippert warned that if the holes for the grease on the bolts are at the top that there is a possibility of a high amount of contact pressure at the top and block the grease hole. If the holes are on the side the grease will come out of bolt easily.

After learning the hard way my first wet bolt install ... what Hondaman174 says is spot on. All the rest of my wet bolt installs for acquaintenances, I've made sure the grease holes are either at 3 or 9 oclock.
