The rear ujoint on my 02 Silverado is a pain to grease.Does anyone here have any thing they use to get in there and grease it.

I have used this on different applications.
It helps if you have three hands or someone to help operate the gun while you try to depress the ball and spring.

Re: Grease gun accessories.

different uses but they also make a slide on 90* head for tight spots .

but the needle type adapter shown above is the ticket to u-joint greasing jobs .

and when changing u-joints try and plan ahead on zerk fitting position . i set them up so there facing the drive shaft tube NOT the axle u-joint yoke . and also clock them to match so you dont need to roll the shaft to hit the next one .
