Well, do you? or dont you? Im thinking yes, cause it needs some kinda lube. Wacha all think?
yes go ahead and do it it may keep it from klunking longer , but i never did .
I never have, and doubt its necessary since it will be bathed in ATF all the time anyway as long as the level in the case is as it should be.
Do you mean grease the splines or the out side of the slipyoke?
i put a little bearing grease on the slip part of mine. it helps keep it from binding up.
i did when i redid my slip yoke seal, not a bad idea at all. i think it did help some. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
I like to grease the pan just a bit before I slip the yolks in... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
As for those slip yokes, I think GM has a special grease that you can use on the splines that will help prevent binding. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Twizted is a GM tech, drop him a PM and he might be able to get ya a part number. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
I used regular bearing grease on mine and the clunk went away......
When I replaced the output seal on my 208, I filled the recess between the inner & outer lips of the seal with grease, and I put a light coating of grease on the outside of the slipyoke shaft. I also put a little ATF on the splines inside the shaft (used a small paintbrush) to keep things smooth. Worked great, no leaks nearly 2 years later.
