Just curious to see what service interval you clean/grease/inspect your servicable arm joints. Don't include the factory Clevites. Anything else is fair game.

I went with DDB's, no service required for the LJ. The Rusty's I had on the TJ needed greased and tightened 2 times a year and were still shitty.

Ive taken my metalcloak arms apart twice in the 5 years I have had them installed. Each time they had plenty of grease. Roughly 50k miles

I wanted to make a pinion angle change to the front so I decided to service the frame side Duroflex joints. They are 6 years old, have 65K miles on them, and is the first time I've serviced them. They need replaced. The right one has a split where the rubber is vulcanized to the bolt shaft. the left one is deformed and mis-shapened.
