I honestly don't think it's possible to lube those up too much. I've seen those been stuffed more than a thanksgiving turkey and still look great after more than two weeks.

Post some pictures so I can see whats up.

Wired up SaxMan's H4 headlights today 'cause I'm awesome like that. While I was there I removed my rear driveshaft to take it and have it balanced and the u-joints replaced. Crazy thing was, as I was driving home in 4-hi with the rear out, I had no vibrations whatsoever. Not at 30 MPH, not at 40 MPH, not at 70 MPH. Meaning that the vibrations were caused entirely by the rear driveshaft being out of whack. 2003x met me in Wakefield and showed me where the drivetrain shop was, and we talked for a little. Less than 2 hours later I got a phone call saying they were done with the shaft and that I could come pick it up. $97, a new u-joint, and 2 weights on the shaft cured all vibes.

He did, however, say that I need a new driveshaft. I knew this, so an SYE and CV shaft will need to be done in the next few months. But for now, I'm not spending any more cash on the TJ - my wallet is drained. But I did buy a new camera yesterday for fun cause mine died.

Pics as always!

I just know to much grease can be a bad thing.

Yep, all vibes are gone. The guy did say however that I need a new rear DS at some point. He said "I didn't bother attempting to remove the upper u-joint. You're going to need a new DS in the next year anyway." And I told him I'd be getting a CV/SYE and that it'd be replaced soon anyways. Went by my mechanic and borrowed his ratchet to get the flange back in so that's all set.

I think they were over-tightened when the alignment was done. I need to get some zerk fittings to replace the worn out ones.

You bet! Once that new camera is fired up, I'm going to take the Jeep for a photoshoot (hopefully the weather will cooperate this weekend) and then you'll be flooded with new pics! Don't have to ask me twice
