I replaced the rubber bushing in the upper wishbone with a lower a arm castor bushing. To disburse the grease, I inserted the bolt, placed it in a vise and moved the wishbone all around until the grease was dispersed.

Insert upper wishbone into body. I placed the foam washer on the same side of the bushing as in the lower a arms. The side that has that green ring.
