Re: Grease U Joint

The only other way is to remove the bearing caps, and put some bearing grease in it with your fingers. I guess you could also remove everything, drill and tap it for a fitting, clean and reinstall and lube as usual. But it would be better to just replace them.

Re: Grease U Joint

Yep, buy universal joints with grease fittings in 'em. Usually you'll find the cheapie chassis parts have grease fittings, as do the high end ones (Moog, etc.). Ones in the middle are usually "greased for life".
