A lot of aftermarket A Arms come with Zyrk fittings. The problem with them is this, depending on the AArm location, a Zyrk fitting could get broken off during full travel of the A Arm. Which is why a lot of the companys offer plugs for the locations of the fittings, so you throw the zyrk in just to grease it, then take it out and put the plug in which is recessed just a little bit. I've had both types, stock arms with out fittings, and arms with. Most of the arms I've had with fittings, it is hard to grease, as in it doesn't want to take grease at all unless you loosen the bolt up. Others, like on the XX, I just disassemble after a while and regrease the bearings. Zyrks do make life a little easier though. But I like tearing mine apart, then I can really get in there and check for damage, and wear and tear.

After looking at it last night, I don't know how it would be on the back lower a-arms. But I think you def could on the rest. If I were going to do it, I'd do it right perpendicular to the ground. That would allow the suspension to fully travel with out the Zerk hitting the mounts at all. I honestly prefer to take the bearings out, that way you can inspect them. But that is just a preference. I haven't had to replace any on the XX, and I've beat mine up pretty good.
