Hey fellow members,

I'm a new member here and I'm sure this has been discussed in the past before. But I've recently purchased an 06 Tundra DC 4X4. It's my first truck I've ever own so be soft to me if I'm a dumbass and don't understand any terms when coming to 4wd. Lol.... Anyways my truck has been having the famous clunking noise/feel when I'm slowing down or starting to pick up speed. I've read few forums where alot of people with 4x2 Tundras were having to replace the cross member, transmission mount and the 4 bolts. I've checked mines and everything seem to be fine. But since mines is a 4X4, I've noticed people mention about greasing the u-joints? Like I said I'm a noobie to trucks, but do have some mechanical experience with cars in general.

Please give me your 2 cents on how I would need to grease and what u-joints would be needed to be lube. Any grease should be fine to used? AutoZone or just genuine Toyota grease....

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the site. Best advice I can give is showing you how to search this site for existing threads. See the top of any page where its black and it says "Search Community"? Type something in there that you want to see, in this case type in drive shaft grease or similar and you will see existing threads. Those should usually help you find what you want. Even if they dont, you are usually better off asking your question in an existing thread thats close to what you want. People subscribe to existing threads so if you post there you should be faster results.
Look this thread and scroll down to post 16 for the pdf.
Do NOT put too much grease in. Gently squeeze the trigger and stop when you feel resistance. People just keep ramming away till it oozes out the seal and thats not good. Thats how you damage the seal.
Also, there is a DIY section on this site. Click on the gen 1 Tundra tab, then 1 gen mods and builds tab. When you get to there you will see the second tab is DIY stuff. Some links are broken since the site "improvements" a while back but hopefully not all.
