Are Spicers geaseable? And why did they make the u joints and ball joints non serviceable? Just so they would fail and make money replacing them?

Slicers are greaseable. I heard there's a u joint that's 5150 or something like that.....heard they are the best.

because how many people actually grease their joints? seriously

A non servicable joint is more reliable than a greasable joint that isn't serviced. engineers know this

I do im super anal about maint. I know some companies do that on things. They make them non serviceable so they will fail so that they can have a return call or have it returned to make more money of the end user. Its a shame to me but its how a lot of companies work now.
