I just replaced my upper control arm and ball joint. The bushings were shot. I might have been able to just clean out the ball joint and replace the boot if this were possible. I replaced it with a Moog ball joint that has a grease zerk It looks like the zerk is only about 1/2 from the tire. I did recently replace my shocking and reused the strut springs. Is my vehicle riding too low? Am I going to have troulbe with this zerk contacting the tire?

AFAIK, the distance from tire to ball joint grease zerk and the tire never changes unless the lug nuts loosen or the lugs break. In that case the tire touching the grease zerk would be the least of your problems. If I'm wrong someone will post.
