Did anyone else upgrade to the metal ball joints? I've had mine for several months now, they seem to be working fine. But I have noticed a black sludge in the ball cups lately that worries me. During installation I had wiped the ball joints with the included gel lubricant, so I'm wondering if the sludge is this lubricant or is it a mix of the lube and a bit of the skin of the ball cups? How long is this lubricant supposed to last, and how effective is it?
Could it be that the sludge is a bit of the ball cups melted down from the friction between the cups and balls? Would it be a good idea to request that Seemecnc should make a metal ball-cup as well?
