I have tried the right angle - can't get it in between the yoke (the diameter of the connector itself is too large)...don't see how the needle will work either because I don't have a straight shot to the zerk. It's nuts! Either the shop who installed them paid no attention to the orientation during installation (and I'm not even sure there is an "orientation"), or ...I don't know.

It's been a long time, but I think that you can get a connector/grease gun fitting that is smaller, I don't think it locks on, you have to hold it on the zerk square and firm.

I had a difficulty like that on the front wheel bearings. I fixed it by replacing the zerks with angled ones. Inexpensive and easy to do.
