Here's a few photos of my splines on the rear teardown. The splines were well lubed when I pulled it, although the grease was black and looked old(dunno what color it normally is). The splines look like the still have teeth on them, but also look a bit worn..is this still good? You can see the old grease in the last pic. All of this still has to be cleaned up of course.

This may be a stupid question, but what should be used to clean the old grease out? I'm about to embark on my first spline lube and I just want to be totally prepared.
Thanks

Paper towel or rag to get as much as you can followed by a gas (yes, I know), diesel or spray carb cleaner wash.

I tore my 05 apart today to check the condition of the splines. It's never been apart, and has 5000 miles. Good news... They were greased and in great shape! WHEW! :)
