    Default GM driveshaft spline grease

    After reading the numerous posts about the driveline clunk fixes, I purchased the GM "miracle" lube specified in the owners manual. Looks to me like the only thing special about it is that it has Teflon infused in it. $44/lb is just crazy money for grease! If I had it to do over, I'd just get Magnalube-G. Appears to have the same ingredients and only $11/lb.

    The GM version DID take care of the clunking for now though ;)

    A little morre truck info might help us figure out which clunk you are refering to. Since it seems that every single model of GM has a different one.
