    Mine came pre-greased. If you're not sure, you can remove a zerk to be sure. Currie recommends moly grease for Johnny Joints. I use Redline CV-2 that I picked up pretty cheap on Google Shopping.

    My arms are making some creaking noises that's why I ask. I don't know if it's normal, or there's a break in period but it sounds like I'm riding in an old pirate ship.
    It's driving me crazy.

    Yes, those should be welded. I just inspected mine to be sure, and I've got beads at all arrows...

    Also, although this is my first experience with Johnny Joints, I would say that Johnny Joints may squeak, but not creak. I thought that my Johnny Joints were creaking, and it turned out to be broken brackets that were missing beads in the cutouts. So be sure to inspect everything very thoroughly.

    I thought my Johnny joints were creaking. Turned out to be the body to frame bolts. I coated them in white lithium grease and the creaking is gone now.

    The bolts that set the longarm brackets in place?
