I'm starting to think maybe the title to my issue should be car having more issues than owner can handle, lol
Seems like its Pandora'* Box, the further I dig into the car, the more problems I unleash upon myself to have to fix.
Glad I caught that though, the grease points are bone dry, and that would have caused that R&P Rod or whatever you call it to fail prematurely I'd imagine, since metal on metal with no lube is never good!
Any certain grease you'd recommend, I was considering this
I do not have a grease gun yet, but am considering getting one in the future, although I have a feeling it won't be useful unless I put my own grease fittings into the boots that would benefit by having a little fresh grease, or do boots on a Park Ave have serviceable fittings?
I'm thinking they are not supposed to need greasing, and have no fittings to service them, but in the future I'd like to change that if I can, I'm just not sure what the name of the fittings I'd need to tap into my boots with...
