Default To lube or not to lube 4 bar end links?

Hello all!
once again I am faced with a minor problem and need some guidance.
Is it necessary to lube the end bushings on a four bar setup to prevent squeeks and aide in smooth movement? The ends that I am using have no zerk fittings or any way to lub them other than removing them, lube and reinstall. If it is necessary to lube them on a regular intervial is it possible to install a zerk fitting? I thought about just drilling and tapping in a zerk fitting underneath the body so it would be out of sight. But I dont think that will work becuse of the inner sleeve.I think that the greese will fill the cavity between the body and sleeve and not lube the bushing or bolt. what you think?
