It gets oiled from the engine oil.

No, that grease is no good for the splines even if reapplied every day. It will help, but it will still wear prematurely. There are tremendous forces at work on a small area in cardan drives, and it takes a special type of compound to prevent wear--in this case, they use one that lubricates steel at forces beyond the yielding strength of any metal known to man, because reasons.

Spec is MoS2, I believe 40% or greater. Honda Moly-60 or any other brand is fine. I make my own thicker paste with Molykote Z and whatever oil is handy. Stays in place on the splines better.
