Chassis Lubrication

Where exactly are all the chassis lubrication points, and how much is too much in the steering lube points? The boots already feel pretty firm to the touch.

Thanks in advance -

Jason

Well, I don't know if you've referred to your manual, or even if the manual has this information...but from my experience, I've never had a problem climbin' under the beast with a grease gun and puzzling it out! Not a difficult thing...you see a zerk, hit it a lick with the grease gun...if there's no zerk, don't...

The Hayne's just says almost exactly what you did. I was looking for a rough count to try and ensure I didn't miss any.

What kind of grease do you use for this? I've never used a grease gun... are the attachemnts the same? I've actually got a TJ but found this under search. I could probably use some lube as well... never done it before.

On my 94 YJ, I have a zerk fitting on all 4 Tie Rod Ends (Drag Link and Steering Knuclkles), upper ball fittings, front and rear driveshaft UJoints, and all my greasable shackles. My ujoints in my front axles don't have zerk fittings. If your boots feel firm, I would not mess with it... you don't want to split out a boot.

I'm not sure if that's all of them, that's all I have run across so far! Have fun!

God Bless Our Troops!

^^^^^^one more on the front driveshaft slip-collar

EDIT: dang, didn't realize this was a few years old. I use a synthetic grease. And I have no clue about a TJ.

The YJ is no longer my DD. I have sacrificed all future retirement plans for jeep parts. I'm depending on social security!
