How to Grease Trailer Bearings and Spindle without EZ Lube Axle and Spindle  


How would you recommend greasing the spindle without a zerk fitting and it doesnt appear that there are the grease holes to get grease towards the inside bearing? Thank you


Expert Reply:

If you don't have an EZ-Lube spindle on your axle then you'll need to remove the hub, remove and repack the bearings, races and seals manually. Standard trailer bearings should be re-packed and greased every 10,000 to 12,000 miles in normal towing conditions; if you're routinely towing at maximum load or live in an extremely warm and dry area it might be less than that. This will be the only way to properly grease the bearings and spindle to perform this routine maintenance. If you don't already have a bearing packer, you might want to consider using one to make the process easier and a bit cleaner.

I've also linked our comprehensive guide on packing bearings, which includes a step by step guide, for you to have a look at.
