    Greasing

    Just got a grease gun so I can do some more my own maintenance on my jk...i know when greasing joints with boots like my tierod and drag link to fill until the boot begins to buldge a little. But for my adams 1350 driveshafts, how much grease do I put in the slip zerk? How do I tell when its good enough? And how about the other spots like the one hidden in the double cardan section? Am I looking for some sort of sign thats its properly filled or just give it a couple pumps and call it good? Thanks guys...

    I normally put a pump or 2 in the double cardan with a needle adapter and hit the zerks until I see it reach the small hole inside the joint. The excess is blown out after the first drive. Gets all over but I can wipe it down pretty quick with a shop paper towel.

    When greasing a ujoint, once it's full, one of the caps will start to have grease oozing out of the seam. That's how I've always done it.

    I was wondering the same thing about Johnny joints. Some joints fight the grease gun and wonít take any grease. Others take plenty and it oozes out and I wonder if thatís good or bad. And other joints like the lower control arms I canít reach whiteout dropping the arm so I never grease them. I bought a needle adapter for my LockNLube and was going to try that next.

    A couple people here have found that the grease fitting bottoms out and won't let the grease move through it. So by loosening the fitting a turn or two, the joint then takes grease.

    Iíve had the same problem but it was my grease gun tip. Grabbed a new one and itís better, but also have had to loosen a couple zerks.

    FLCA can be greased more easily with a mod or two, even on factory axles. Check this out...
