They also tell you to put your finger over the slip joint bleed hole to get the grease to go forward toward the splines. I also undo the threaded collar to help get the grease into the splines and before I screw the collar back on I give it a shot of grease in that area for good measure.

Can anyone tell me where this "slip joint bleed hole" may be located? I have looked all over the slip joint cover and have yet to locate any "hole".

Chief: On the driveshaft, the slip joint has a threaded cap and you can see the splines there. The other end has a grease fitting, yoke and u-joint. The bleed hole is in that end of the slip yoke, behind the cross for the u-joint. It may take a lot of grease before it starts to come out the hole. Blocking the hole forces grease into the splines

Hooligan, thks for above info. Bleed hole was right where you indicated. So tiny that i have missed it for quite some time. At any rate, greased up the spline as indicated in owners manual. Took about 25 squeezes of the grease gun trigger befor it was full. Thanks agaqin...

HELPFUL HINT !
After greasing the U joints, wrap a turn of saran wrap around the U joints in the direction of rotation, to prevent the expended grease from spraying all aound as you drive.
