I'm having the hardest time getting grease to go in. Any tips how to grease those fittings? Shackles take grease ok.

I’ve had some of the wet bolts that weren’t drilled all the way through and there was no way to get grease into them. Craig

If you have never had the Equa-flex take grease Schomer is on the right track. When I installed my wet bolts I also had several that were not drilled all the way through.

Same here, didn't realize it until the next year when I went to grease them. eTrailer told me "Sorry".
Haven't bought anything from them since.

Wow, it was about 2012 that I got those bad bolts and it was when I bought Dexter easy flex and wet bolt/shackle kits from E trailer. Several guys posted that they had the same problem. I wonder how many more of those bad bolts they have! Craig

Easy enough to check. Drop a small drill bit down each hole and, if you can't see it, then send the whole thing back...under warranty, on their dime. You'd think it was an LCI product...
