NP, I knew I had pics of it somewhere. Just took me awhile to find them
Ok so I figured out my password to photo bucket so lets see if this works
What kind of grease do you use Boyd?
I prefer astro glide FWIW
dont tell me, tell Boyd...
On each other?
ewwwwww.... visual of a greased up Boyd/Keith/Lurry tripod...
Mobil-1...."I put that shit on everything"
or do you mean for the balls themselves? I use tri-lube for that
I just threw up
I prefer the homebrew!!!!
Mix it in a plastic bag. Cut a hole in the end. Squeeze 'er out!!! It looked like you already squeezed one out!
Ok, I temp fixxed my LBJ's..............bought a needle fitting thingamajig and pumped those bastards full of grease. hopefully it will last. Also got tie rod ends, need to get those installed ASAP, got a ton of slop on the passenger side.
Keep an eye on the BJ boot. Once you warm it up that grease will keep squirting out so youll have to keep at it until you change them out. I kept lubing mine up for almost a month and it worked for a while then no matter how much I filled them up they sounded like popcorn being popped.
Whats the deal with the graphite...Is that something you picked up along the way or your "special brew"?
Curious I am and would like to hear more
I updated post #2 with installation http://toyotaoff-road.com/threads/8...ment-2005-Tacoma?p=64054&viewfull=1#post64054
Thanks for the write up, been needing to this for a while now, just haven't had time to do it yet, made it look fairly simple to do
It started with the technical peeps at Total Chaos. They were recommending a graphite synthetic. My experience with this mix is 100% quiet - now if I could have some way to encapsulate the uniballs with this mix - or I had thought of just dry graphite - I would be squeak free without having to spay or squirt lube on them!
It's not, but we can handle it
Shit.....I just lubed and installed my bushings. Maybe Ill grab some and make a mix for the cams and bolts while I'm out grabbing breakfast tomorrow before I throw it all back on the truck. I need to figure out some kind of cap before winter hits. That is definitely on my list and has been for a while
I've actually never done a ball joint before so if I can figure out how to do it safely..........
It helps when you have OCD
