Re: What lube for axle bearings and seals, and axle splines?
the bearings depend on oil from the center to find its way out to the end. I coat the axles as they are installed and fill the pocket around the bearings , and roll the rollers to coat thourghlly .Then I fill/overfill a little if possible. A little messy but worth it. It wouldn't hurt to jack up the left side as high as you can, let it set 5 minutes , then do the right .That will get some oil on all the flow surfaces
