I have greased the new fittings on the new upper/lower ball joints. THANKS!

Maybe one of the ball joints got damaged. It should turn fairly free and smoothly. If you cant turn it easily it almost has to be ball joints as that it what it turns on. Keep in mind that new ball joints are going to be stiff.
