Finally got some time to do some FJ maint.

rotated tires, pulled lower rear link off to service, been real noisy lately. Was pretty standard taking apart, no wear to be seen. grease was as hard as clay.
After an extensive internet research (about 45 seconds) found i have been using incorrect grease. Must be Moly, i was using Royal Purple, (cause that's whats in my power grease gun)

after a lot of cleaning out the old grease and lubing all the parts with the correct grease and re assembly all is smooth and quiet now.
