I'm a lot less picky with ball joints, one the moisture and dirty grease comes out I'm done. With the U joints and bearings, I'm a lot more particular. I keep pumping till I'm sure I've fully flushed them out, then I wipe up the excess with some paper towel and dispose of it. Be sure to clean the zerks good before greasing, as I'm paranoid about pushing grit in through the zerks. I also find issues sometimes with u joints that don't flow to all caps. Warming the joint up with a propane torch will help if you have that problem. I also lucked out and got some hard to find U joints from spicer from the front axle that have zerks on every cap. Very handy if you have the unequal flow problem.
