such as ball joints etc. The there are no Zerk fittings, can they be installed or do you have top replace the ball joints and other front suspension parts.

There is no need to grease a grease less joint or replace it if it is not worn out. There are a few aftermarktet parts that will have no zerks as well although many will have them.

They are "sealed for life". No grease is needed, but they do wear out eventually. I wouldn't attempt to drill holes to add a zerk fitting. You may end up damaging the ball joint inside.

My Cam's got over 240k miles and still on the original relax and enjoy the ride.
