    Default ISS Lube Procedure Part 2

    Step 4: Disconnect shaft and push towards firewall.


    Step 5: Pull shaft out from inside cab.


    Note: The procedure to lube the shaft is described, in detail, in the instructions that come with the kit.
    Step 6: Remove the spacer with needle nose pliers.


    Step 7: Squirt all the grease from the kit into the end of the shaft, try not to get any on the sides at the top or it will be hard to keep the stopper from slipping out under pressure.


    Step 8: After installing the stopper into the end of the shaft, place the u-joint at 90 deg. and press against a hard surface.

    Default ISS Lube Procedure Part 3

    Step 9: Pull the shaft out to full travel and make sure there is at least 1/2" of grease protruding.


    Step 10: Spread the spacer out a little with snapring pliers or by carefully pulling your needle nose pliers.


    Step 11: Tap the spacer into the end of the shaft untill it is 1/4" from the end.


    Step 12: Reinstall the shaft by pushing it back through the hole from the cab. Tighten the upper nut to 35 lb ft and the lower bolt to 37 lb ft.

    Not my work. I have seen this on other sites so i wanted to post it here to be helpful. Mine has been replaced once under warranty but for those that have no choice but to do it themselves, here is how.

    Smile Intermediate steering shaft lube procedure

    Did this procedure on my Silverado and it did not last long. Ended up installing Borgenson shaft assembly. I hope i dont seem ungreatful for your info, and it may help others. It may be because my truck is lifted that it did not last. Thanks.
