U-joint, hub, axle ?s

I have several questions, first off its a 05 with 87k miles.

Its all under warrenty until feb 15th 2012.

1. Did this truck come with greasable front axle ujoints? (mine are greasable)

2. My passenger hub works fine, needed to turn the axle to greese it so i locked the hub manully, to greese, ok good.... the drivers side will turn the axle half while in auto or manuel, so is something messed up?

3. Ther is quite abit of 360* slop in both axles where they go into the axle housing and the hub housing. Only noticed when jacked up to greese the u joints. I can slop them around with my fingers. Normal or problem? Isnt leaking oil

No replies, didnt think my questions were that stupid. Well i took it back to the dealer, so far so good, they even gave me a loaner for the down time. Ther taken a look at the clutch to, since every once in a while it shutters.

Actually starting in 05 they were using greasable u-joints in the front end. My 05 front end has never been apart and I have greasable u-joints. I wish they would make everything greasable.

Hmmm, I've replaced quite a few u-joints on the 05+ trucks and never seen grease fittings.

I had mine replaced because I never saw the zirc fittings on them. Yes they came from the factory that way. For what ever reason these are the only greasable u joints on the truck.
