What is involved in servicing slides?

The other day, while changing my oil, I looked up and saw the track that my slides run on. Are these supposed to be lubricated or greased. I paid about 65 bucks last year to have them serviced and I think that they only lubricated the seals.

Most manufactures don't recommend greasing the gears as this will cause dirt to stick to them causing more wear. About all you can do is clean and lubricate the seals to keep them from drying out and cracking

Generally you do not want grease or o il on the slide tracks or gears. Grease collects dirt. Follow the manufacturers recommendations. At most use a dry lube.
