    Best grease for greasing suspension parts and drive shafts

    Iím trying to get in a better maintenance routine with the Jeep because it sits a lot. Gonna be doing a gear lube change in the next couple weeks and figured Iíll get my greasing on the same schedule. What do you all use when greasing your suspension (control arms) and your driveshafts? Thanks in advance!

    I've run Lucas and Royal Purple and they both work great on general joints. If you have Johnny Joints, I've started to run Swepco 101 being that it's just moly grease and that's what Currie recommends. Here's a link for it: https://amzn.to/2LMt910

    So far so good.

    Do you grease only the Johnny Joints with that and everything else with other grease?

    I just started using the Swepco moly and for my johnny joints but wouldn't hesitate to use it on everything. That being said, I do have 2 grease guns and the other is still loaded up with Royal Purple.

    regardless of grease gun, if you don't use one of those Lock-N-Lube couplers on your gun, half your grease ends up on the driveway/floor. I bet Eddie has a link for those. Money well spent!

    Any tips for a new grease gun that likes to leak everywhere once the weather gets warm?

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
