it's not a commom problem, the driveshalf couplings and boots need to be inspected often and grease aleast once a year. A injection needle with outboard grease will work fine. The o-rings tend to dry out on the driveshaft boots with age allowing mud and water to get inside the boots washing the grease out of the them. With no grease in the couplings, medal on medal is not going to last very long.
I wouldn't do this ..... but i've heard of some guys that will use a needle(grease needle) and give an injection every so often into the boots , the reason for this is to keep fresh grease , but also pushes water out , apparentely these are guys that are always in the water!!! Anybody ever heard of this ?? or comment from ur own experience? ..thanks
Grit has gotten into the protective boot on the drive shaft and striped it on ya there, D-VO. I had to replace the one on the 400 for the same reason, remember. If your gonna replace it you may aswell go with the Warn 424.
