A tech manual from Rockwell, 1983 era, states that the weight must be left on the king pins when lubricating them. This goes against all that I have heard in the past.

Ernie.
I think it has something to do with where on the spindle the grease fittings are. I have been involved with vehicles with spindles and King pins for years and have always heard the same as you. Get the weight off for good greasing. But if the company that makes the axles says differently I guess they must know.
