Drive Shaft greasing..

does the drive shaft that goes to the rear axle need to be greased at certain intervals? I am getting a squeak at low speeds after braking/stoping and goes away. Could it be a caliper sticking?

No referance to lubrication in the FSM. I suspect that it may be just glazing of the pads/rotors or very mild surface rust from sitting over night. It could be a sticking caliper, how many miles do you have on it and when did it start?

I have 12k on it now, seems to be coming from the rear and only happens every now and then after a red light and like dropping somebody off in the parking lot then goes away. It happened last night after a 300 mile trip to the city. Got to the parking lot to drop friends off it did it at like 5mph and I stopped one more time that night and it didn't do it..

Are you very easy on the brake pedal? Just try this, maybe the pads have gotten some clearance and are 'rocking' on the calipers a little. Find a safe place and do a hard panic stop in forward and reverse to try and seat the pads. This could also clear away any glaze that's built up. Outside of that, since you're still under warranty, have the dealer look at it.

I am generally very easy on the brakes. Never any hard stopping, unless stopping for a stubborn deer in the road. I give the brake pad seating in a try and see what happens. Thanks for the info
