Hi, I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Today, we're going to talk about greasing your steering knuckles or actually any joint on, in your steering system. Most have a grease fitting like this; if it does, well you want to make sure that the grease fitting is clean before we attach the grease fitting hose. We wouldn't want to push any dirt into the grease fitting. The grease that goes through this fitting goes into this joint. This joint has a ball and socket and needs to be lubricated regularly about every three or four thousand miles of operation. So, now that I have a clean grease fitting, I'm going to attach my grease fitting hose. It's going to go in with a distinctive snap and we're going to put some grease in it. As you can see, the grease starts to come out of the joint. We're going to look for the old grease to come out and when we see the new grease come out, the joint has been greased. We're going to wipe off the excess with a rag. And that's how we grease just about any joint in your front suspension including steering knuckles. I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
