    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.

    if you are out of warrenty it will cost about 250.00 to replace the shaft my servesing dealer told me that the grease repair is a temp fix and will have to be redone within a year..that is why he is only doing replacements unless the person insists on the grease repair out of warrenty as well as under warrenty

He got me mine Ii would be willing to part with it. I am selling my tahoe and it doesnt make the noise anymore. I will send a pic of the part i have to whoever wants it just so you know you are getting the right one. there are two differant ones.
