    Hello everyone. As part of my journey to find out what may be causing some of my vibrations, I took a peak under the car to inspect the driveshaft.

    Now I'll admit, I don't know much, but it seems to me like the driveshaft on my 4runner looks pretty dry.

    Just wanted to come here and see what you guys thought.

    I appreciate any feedback.

    Thank you

    Hit with some grease. Can’t do any harm that I could think of

    Depends on what you’re greasing. The slip joints can cause drivetrain damage if over greased. To much grease and it can’t physically move in and out, they need to constantly move in and out with suspension travel.

    Greasing is fine, but just stick to a couple pumps every 6 months or so.
