I went through some deep water with my pathy about 3 months before my rear joint seized. Probably contributed to it by washing out the remaining grease and accelerating the corrosion of the needles.G35TR wrote:Mine looked just like that, except 2 opposite sides of the joint looked like that.

Interesting that yours was the rear though. Mine was the front TC side joint. I'm curious why it affects some fronts (most cases) and some rears.
