To grease or not to grease...U-Joints
I am replacing my u-joints and wanted to get greasable joints until I realized that the only difference between standard and heavy duty joints is that the standard u-joints are greasable and the heavy duty are not drilled.
What I am wondering about is how likely I am to break the standard joint vs. the heavy duty? I like to be able to grease my u-joints because that is the only way to know their condition without removing them (if the grease comes out all four caps, the bearings are most likely ok).
So, how many of you are running the standard, greasable u-joints? Thanks.
