The easy way of spraying the steering column lower U joint.

1. Turn your wheels all the way to the left.

2. Looking through the gap you should be able to see the U joint at the end of the steering column.

Link to what you are looking for:

3. Have one person spray the U joint while another moving the steering wheel left and right to evenly spread the lubricant.

You can see it through the left wheel well with the wheel off pretty easily.

I just had this joint replace a few weeks ago. It was about 150 bucks at the dealer. You might be able to free it up by hitting it with a hammer, but it will freeze again. I had my mechanic do it for about 2 hours of labor charge. Car steers like new now. Definitely diagnose it though before you start replacing parts. Mine was completely rusted up.

It's one of those pieces that I'm shocked manufacturers don't protect better, a rubber boots around it would prevent nearly all wear and tear yet you never see them covered.

I know, but it did take 11 years for mine to finally seize up on me, lol. It was amazing though how that tiny u-joint made my car almost impossible to turn.
