We have completed a study of the compact radio jets of
41 g-ray bright blazars with the VLBA, mostly at 22 and 43 GHz.
From the multi-epoch images, we determine the proper motions of the
apparent superluminal components. We compare the epochs of zero separation
from the (presumed stationary) core with the g-ray lights curves
obtained from the 3rd EGRET catalog in order to determine whether
g-ray flares are associated with major energetic disturbances that
propagate down the jet.
