I would also do the front. Pull back the rubber boot, disengage the U joint from the output shaft, clean and relube. You don't need to remove the driveshaft, but it is a tedious procedure. Most of the complaining I have been doing about having to lube the splines comes from doing the front. It actually takes me longer to do the front than the rear. Many say you don't have to do the front, but I don't know why. Seems to me there would be just as much wear at the front as at the rear.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
