    Getting ready to install a steering cable nut with zerk fittings and then use gear oil rather than grease for the cable lubrication. Any thoughts on pros and cons out there?

    personally i wouldnt do it. the oil is too thin, your better off with grease imo

    I used EP Moly grease on mine. It is the messiest job you could undertake, but it works.
