Is there a way to remove the metal clamp and re-use it?? Or is it junk once removed? I noticed it has the factory paint mark on it for people like us who like to fix our own problems. lol Thanks in advance!
Actually if you use a grease gun with a needle tip, it will slide in under the metal clamp, and allow you to pump in the grease. Then you can just work it around to the lower part with your hand. Give it a bit of a massage! That is how I greased mine, prior to installing my chatter eliminator. With both options covered, I have 0 noise/chatter. I used 5th wheel grease I purchased at a Peterbuilt dealer. That stuff is THICK!
I just needled it through the boot. It made such a difference, next time I'll just pop the top clamp off and replace it with a hose clamp or something. Wish I had done this a while ago! For $9.10 in supplies the benefits are astounding!
