    I just lubed my full drive shaft. 14oz of mobile one synthetic gone and I still haven't lubed the double cardan joint in the middle nor have I lubed the u joint by the tranny..

    The rear slip joint took about 50 pumps before grease started coming out and it was the new grease I just pumped in.. I guess it was bone dry!! The front slip joint was take grease when I ran out... I guess it's bone dry as well. Gonna go take it out for a drive now..

    Should I grease it again in a couple of days to make sure ALL of the old grease has been replaced?

    The slip joint only needs 4-5 pumps. It should not come out anywhere on the slip joint like it does on the u joints.

    ummm the service manual i have says pump grease into the slip joint until grease comes out.... all sources I've read said it does it many pumps compared to the u joints.. but mine took much more than I thought.. Then again, my truck had pretty bad axel wrap.
