Lubing a Pro Link?

Post by JLeather »

I've seen several mentioned of making sure to lube the suspension on a prolink regularly, but I'm not sure which parts specifically should be cleaned/lubed? Anyone got a picture or a diagram? I'm putting a new rear tire on my '82 and figured while it's this far apart I should check/clean/lube the rear suspension?

Disassemble and lube everything that moves, that's connected to the ProLink mechanism.

From a couple years ago but some good info in this thread on the bushings.

Particularly, check the seals. The original are so old they tend to dry and crack. The only source I know that may have them is Bert at CMSNL. Could try Louis to see if he has any OE NOS lying about. (usedcbxparts.com) You might find the collars or bearings worn a few micron below spec. Again, CMSNL or, maybe, Louis. Although, if only 5 micron or less wear, they should work with a good cleaning and lube.
