Greaseable assembly includes a pressed in grease fitting to lube the CV socket and greaseable universal joints. Fits the original equipment Saginaw Double Cardan Front Constant Velocity Driveshafts used on 1977½ to 1991 full size square body style Chevy/GMC 4x4s and 1975½ to 1993 Dodge and Plymouth full size 4x4s.
