When you say spindle, are you referring to the splined shaft that the arm attached to ? I didn't bother greasing mine as I would be afraid it would attract grit from road dirt etc. My understanding was that the rubber cup was there to prevent dirt/grit from getting between the two ? Old vans, eh ?!
