    ...and its a rush when it happens!

    It's like opening the throttle on a turbine aircraft and getting an unexpected BANG from a compressor stall. You'll never forget the first time and after that, it is still a "thrill". And the comment about needing a laundry is correct.

    A steering stabilizer will cover for slightly loose ball joints or king pin pivots on a front steering axle. When it its gets too sloppy, nothing will cover for the looseness.

    I am guessing that since there are issues with modern gear oils in the transmission there could be a potential problem with some assembly greases. What is the preferred assembly lube for the transmission?

    I have always used the lube I am going to run in the transmission in a squirt can. For lube to "stick" things like the counter shaft bearings and thrust washers in place, Vaseline.

    I didn’t think of Vaseline. That would work well. I keep some in the shop to grease o-rings. The service manual just says something like “sticky grease” and I wanted to make sure I didn’t use anything that would be hard on the yellow parts. Thanks!

    It is good practice to make sure, that's for sure! I have seen well intended lubricants and sealers cause a lot of problems due to incompatibility. Vaseline is a great assembly lube. It is however petroleum based. There are somethings it will ruin. If something is made from REAL rubber (from a rubber tree plant) it will slowly degrade it. It dissolves very quickly in oil and gear lube. This makes it great for assembly as it will dissolve quickly into the lube when you fill.
