FAQ: Do I need Zerk (grease) fittings on my new tie rod ends? What don't the new ones have them?
Japanese manufacture 555 no longer ships their tie-rod-end kits with Zerk fittings pre-installed. They cite the fact that far too many users in fact over-grease the joints and cause the boots to fail. Once the boots fail, the joint life is greatly reduced. If you're the type that likes to grease your joints on occasion and are comfortable with the fact you won't over grease them an blow the boot, simply swap the Zerk fittings from your old joints to the new set. Alternatively you can source the Zerk fittings's from a hardware or auto parts store. Otherwise, the joints come pre-greased and are ready for installation.
Tech Tip: Your steering ends will need to be painted either before or after you have installed them.
We prefer to install them first, wipe them down with some brake cleaner or paint prep and then use a piece of cardboard as a shield to give them a couple of quick coats of paint. You can pre-paint them but we recommend you mask off the threaded portion to prevent installation headaches. In either situation, use an anti-seize product on the threads into the actual tubes themselves.

Found some rusted portions of the original steering linkage and the ball joints worn out. Decided to replace entire steering linkage setup. Cruiser Outfitters had the OEM 555 parts all together as an easy to order package. I didn't want to order it piece by piece and forget something. Old unit removed and measured, set up new unit and it went together with no issues. Truck drives better and I have the confidence these high quality parts will last another 240,000 miles. Thanks!
