My mechanic, doing some normal service work, said he put some grease in the u-joints. I didn't think u-joints needed any grease anymore. Anybody got any thoughts?I've a 2000 Isuzu Trooper with 200,000 + miles and have never put grease anywhere near the u-joints.

Most of today's factory u-joints do not have grease fittings but aftermarket joints do, I am surprised that at 200K that you still have factory joints. My 96 Trooper has grease fittings in the joints and slip yokes.
