    Greasing suspension

    Hi. Got my 2021 31MB in June of 2020. Yesterday I greased the suspension. Yes, I realize I should have greased it at the end of the season last year, but it didin't see to many miles. The rear most hangers took grease into the zirc, but it did not come out anywhere (used a nail to push the zirc in and the grease I forced in came out). Some of the rest had grease come out both sides, but most only on the side of the zirc. I assume the back ones have problems, but what about the rest? Thanks!

    Depending on the orientation of the grease hole, you may have to unload the suspension to allow the grease to escape the bolt. If grease is coming out the side of the zerk
    it's possible your grease gun may not be sealing tight enough, or the zerks are simple press fit and not screw in, and are allowing grease out the sides. Usually this is followed
    shortly by the zerk coming out when you pull the grease gun away. Check to make sure the zerks are screwed in tight.

    Grease zircs are tight. I should have been more specific and said that Greece is coming out between the spring and the hanger but only on one side.

    That's not unusual, rarely does the grease come out evenly around the pin being greased.
