    Last few months I have been hearing a chirpping and metal to metal sound from somewhere on my truck. Changed all 3 fan belts and still there. So lastnight on my way home it got so loud that I could easliy hear it over the radio.
    So I removed my driveshaft to grease it because the first u joint is impossible to lube while it's on the truck.
    To my surprise the middle of the cardone shaft was completely dry! :eek:
    So pushed the old grease out of the joints and slapped it back on the truck. I hope this solves my issue.

    Yea, I fully expected a lot of jokes related to the thread title.

    The thread did not disappoint, kudos.

    I think it's recommended to lube 'er up every oil change...? I didn't realize this at first :anonymous:

    LOL, I was trying so HARD to avoid key words whilst typing this but it's unavoidable! LOL!
    There wasn't any question on my part just posted incase someone in the future uses the search bar for their driveshaft issues.
    Anyhow, the noise seems to come and go (damn did it again). I'll see on my 160 mile drive today if the noise comes back or if I end up dropping my shaft again...Damn!

    Seriously do you guys just use standard grease on the driveshaft or does it require something special?
