Building on the KP discussion below, I find that a 50/50 mix of bearing grease and 90wt works about right. I also use the ziplock freezerbag technique, but after I cut off the corner, I put that corner down into a funnel that has an appropriately sized tip. By that I mean a tip that will fit into the hole on the top of the knuckle. All that then remains is to push on the back of the freezer bag, and the KP comes out exactly where you want it.

: ****** Begin recipe
: Once you have it back together you can put the KP in a ziplock bag and cut
: I use a cheap (read really inexpensive) suction gun to fill the knuckles. Works
: : Exactly what product should be used to lube the front steering knuckes? I know the book says universal joint lubricate but if someone could name a product or what to look for that would be helpful. Thanks!
