I also wanted to respond to this as I noted someone mentioned the prefered zerk fittings in the end of the shaft. I had these already when I sent my rear uprights to be rebuilt by Pantera Performance Center last year for new axels and bearings and Dennis capped the shaft zerks and added zerks to the lower upright to lube the bushings. He told me he now prefers this method. He didn't like the fact that most of the greese was captured in the shaft and never made it to the bushings.
