    Welp, the needle didn't create enough pressure in the zerk for me to get the grease into the u-joints. So back to square one. Everyone keeps mentioning a 90* fitting they used to get to it, does someone have a link to one that works (or maybe some pictures of the modifications they had to make to make it work) to get to the front zerk of the front drive-shaft?

    I got started on my install for long travel. Tore down one side, cleaned it up, and welded on uca gussets. Gave everything a nice coat of paint and will continue tomorrow.

    I plan on getting one. But with my normal tip, just need to push it on and hold it in there while you pump. Its awkward, but you can get it done

    I just use a normal gun and have zero issues. The only hassle is having to remove the heat shield on the rear of the Tcase to get to the one on the front of the rear drive shaft. Impossible to get to with the shield on (I've tried many times out of laziness hahaha)

    For the front zerk on the front shaft maybe try pushing it on harder? there's no real trick to it. My cheapo Lucas grease gun goes right on.

    I went to replace the valve cover gasket and when I removed the air intake resonator thing (2.7 4 cylinder) I saw what what causing my oil leak. There is a small 90* hose that goes from the valve cover to the resonator, it pulled off the valve cover too easy. I ordered a new hose and squeeze clamp (you need two but the hose comes with one). The parts cost $13.
