Default Ball Joint grease fitting?

Hello Everyone!

I just had new ball joints installed in my Ranger. Upper and lower joints. They do not have any grease fittings. Can I drill and tap them for grease fittings?

Have any of you done this?

Thanks for your comments!

Ya the OEM ones wont have a place to grease them. All aftermarket ones do have the hole.

you can drill, tap and do it a lot of people do
