    I bought a tube of Mobil1 sythetic and did mine a few weeks ago.

    Its quite a messy job too. 5 joints to do. The two on the front driveshaft were a pain in the ass to tighten the fitting to the zerk

    I was wondering the same thing yesterday since I changed my oil at 15,000 miles. The manual recommended greasing the "propeller shaft". I assume that is the driveshaft?

    Other than the 2 driveshaft fittings, what else needs to get lubricated? Should I use OEM Toyota grease or is Mobil 1, etc okay too?
