Are there any grease zirks on the JT anywhere or around the slip yoke on the drive shaft? Any of you get a thump feel in the back end when you come to a stop, kinda like a soft rear end tap coming to a stop? I had that issue with my last vehicle being the 17 Tacoma and it was a drive shaft issue.

The Maintenance Schedule would refer to anything requiring regular greasing

It made me think about it as I was rolling around under the truck retorquing all the “loose from factory” suspension nuts and bolts, front and back, and I noticed a smear of red grease on the bottom side of the large pitman arm nut at the base of the steering gear box. Odd place for grease to hang out. ??
