>Adams says they should greased every 3k miles.I assume there are folks out there that have lifted their 392 to 3 1/2" and installed an aftermarket front drive shaft and maybe have a full set of skids also. My question is, how in the heck are you getting grease into the flat zerk at the transfer case? Adams says they should greased every 3k miles. For starters, since the 392 has full time 4WD, the transfer case has to be put in neutral and the front tires have to be off the ground to rotate the driveshaft to get the zerk in the right position. To add to the frustration, the skid plate(s) and crossmember make it almost impossible to see the zerk let alone get the needle in there to grease it....what a PITA!
Where do they say that?
My guess is they are recommending way more than necessary.
How often should I grease my shaft and what type of grease should I use?
If you're not going through water/mud, my guess is every 15K miles is more than enough.FWIW…I know you’re “supposed” to grease this joint every 3-5K miles but on my old lifted 06’ Power Wagon I never greased the factory CV joint (same design as Adams) and had no failures over 120K miles. I’m going with the Adams driveshaft on my 392 and while I definitely don’t look forward to greasing it I’ll do my best to do it every 5K…even if it’s a massive PITA.
