Greasing the slip yoke is fine as long as you do not over grease it. 1 or 2 pumps from the grease gun & thats it.paul why is greasing the slip joint a nono? its got a greas nipple on it for GREASING. Any excess grease is pushed out under compression of the shaft

"Over greasing" as I stated before, is a no no as it can set hard over time and cause an imbalance and may also not allow full movement when compressed if the grease sets hard.
The slip yoke seal is there to keep the grease in & the dirt out. Allowing grease to push out past the seal will allow grit to get in over time.
