Steering - steering stops greasing

After long use on freeway and dirt roads you will notice your surfs front end develops a loud crunching/squeeking/scraping sound on full lock. This is your steering stops, this is a common problem with the Hilux IFS system. A simple fix to this is to keep it regualrly greased with some heavy duty grease.


where the yellow arow is pointing is where you can smother in grease. There are rubber covers available from toyota for these but tend to gradually wear down.
