To All,

I normally grease the rig's U-Joints twice / year, couple squirts in each nipple all the way around.

I know I should not over grease them as well, but today I was told by a Mechanic as we were conducting a casual conversation that the U-Joints should be greased up every oil change.

Is that correct, am I messing something, if so how often should I be greasing them up ?

The FSM did not reflect service intervals on this as well.



Thanks

Al

Al, I grease them every oil change which is every 5k. U-Joints get grease til they stop popping and slip yokes get it until they start to spread. Of course I needed to trash my rear shaft before adopting the yoke method :'(.
