greasable trunnion bushings


Recommended Posts

I try to grease my truck at least once a week, and I always just put 10-15 shots in the trunnion. I've heard that you're supposed to jack the truck up where the weight is off of the springs, but I never do that. I may be messing up, I'm not sure.

Like they said grease is cheap, I did my dump trucks weekly, road trucks every two or three weeks unless the weather was funky. Bad weather or I was hauling the dump trailer off road then weekly.

Yes, you are supposed to jack the rear of the truck up via the frame, this takes the static load off the bushing & will allow the grease to get where it is needed most, THE BOTTOM. Highly recommend a EP or Extreme Pressure grease, as it will continue to lubricate the bushing to shaft surface even under extreme loading.
