What lubricant is suitable for these steering components? The application is an off road vehicle (Polaris Ranger).

Look for a port for a flush-tip grease gun needle or a Zerk fitting can thread into. If you have one, use any good quality non-moly grease for those U-joints.

If the service manual doesnt say what use, I'd go with a water resistant CV joint lube.

How exposed is the joint? If its protected or out of the way id be tempted to clean it, moly-grease it and put a boot or gaitor over it.


Cable ties should hold it

Don't use moly grease on ball or needle bearing joints.

I would use a calcium based grease, grade 1.5. Calcium to resist washout; grade 1.5 because you don't want to use anything too heavy for micromotion application.

I checked the service manual. There is no mentioning of lubricating these joints, but I figure any lube is better than none.

Those are sealed. Not meant to be lubed.
