Top, just enough to make the boot bulge a little. Not flat, but not inflated like a donut. In between. Down here, we call Ball Joint Lubricant "chassis grease". Have fun.!!! Good to see you "back"....you were MIA for a bit....I was wondering if you had a longboard accident or something!

Two of my favorite things to eat!!!! Crab cioppino is a specialty of mine when I'm feeling rich enough to buy all of the ingredients......Been crabbing and salmon fishing a few times, up in Oregon, but nothing commercial.

Yeah, you can use the red bearing grease. That's what's in my gun now. I use it on all my vehicles....seems to work well, especially on u-joints.
