I'm not sure I'd put enough grease in the splines to actually move the shaft. In fact, I'm real sure I'd never do that. Not that I'll post such a thing to the Tundra forum.. but I'll tell you guys- that's way to much grease. :)

Thanks for saying that Nakman because I was thinking the same exact thing :rolleyes: - I usually do 4-5 squirts in there each oil change. Ben explained to me a couple years ago what filling the shaft up with grease could do and feel like when coming to a stop.

I was interested to see how full my rear driveshaft would be when I pulled it and I was surprised to see that it wasn't even close to full - in fact I could see bare metal at the bottom of the tube and a collection of grease covering one side of the bottom maybe an inch deep...The driveshaft splines had a nice coating of red Mobil-1 grease on them. Based on what I saw I may bump the 4-5 squirts up to 7-8 or so each time.

Hey, it was not too long ago that I did not know the difference between a bolt and a stud (noob).....but thanks to all of you, especially Robbie for reminding me every time I see him, I know the difference now!

Sheesh and to think I thought a stud was what Michele woke up to every morning. :hill:

According to the long-time Toyota tech that rebuilt my transmission and transfer case, greasing the spline too much (hydro lock) is the major cause of cracked transfer cases. When the driveshaft cannot compress, it stresses the case housing. Less is more in this case. T

How many threads have you read where someone dumped the tranny fluid trying to change the engine oil? That's one of my favorites.....

Where do I take my truck to pay someone to touch up paint the scratch in my bumper?

One of my all time favorite 100 series threads was a guy who thought by replacing his license plate bulbs with LED's he would see a noticeable MPG improvement due to the ALT not working as hard. I wish I could find it. But in all honesty the 80 section has gotten pretty bad over the last year too.

I watched a college roommate do this on his Subaru. He won't make that mistake again and I will never let him live it down. They will give a mechanical engineering degree to ANYONE.
