Lubrication Points On 4.8 When Servicing

Post by Onematch »

Please can someone indicate what areas should be lubricated when servicing a Patrol 4.8, and if possible what grease to use.

Many thanks Rob

There should be 10 grease nipples under the car Rob.
Three in each prop-shaft, and four on the steering (one per tie rod end).

I think they all use Lithium soap-based grease (IE normal multi-purpose grease).

If im not mistaken most GU's have sealed tie rod ends. So you may only find zerk nipples on the prop shafts.

If you running aftermarket front end gear then thats a different story.
