    Only supposed to put 5-6 pumps of the grease gun any more and you can pop the seal out on the end of the axle.

    The axle must be jacked up before greasing with wheel off the ground. Bit of a job on tag systems. did our Burstner every year

    If you have leaf springs they don't need greasing
