    Every Friday if you manage to see me you will see that I carry a bottle jack in the truck and I'm out there in the parking lot jacking the front end of the truck up and pushing grease to the kingpins

    That's one thing with ta they do not check the front end up when they Grease the front end which means you're King Pins aren't getting fully lubricated while they're loaded

    Oh I had an old mechanic who used to be a truck driver he has been driving white Volvo since the 80s and he told me to jack it up to get the lubricant properly inside the Kingpin cavity if I don't have to jack it up that would be awesome because that saves me a lot of work

    I would like to find out for certain because I am tired of jacking that thing up I do know it allows for better clearance to get the grease gun in there
