1) Mobile 1, 90w, approximatly 1 gallon and/or until it comes back out
the fill hole of course.
2) Saw the other answer (which is best) - but a light tap to get it in
or lever pressure to force joint into taper will work sometimes if nuts
3) I used 30W engine oil. Stand Rack on end and pour in from other. Top
boot removed. Rack must be out of car.
