My early '94 splines looked fine at 65K, but I lubed 'em anyway.

If you're going far enough to separate the transmission, I'd recommend
pulling the tranny, paralever, and rear drive apart to replace the pivot
bearings, especially if you can detect play back there.  Mine were shot, and
I think they're a common failure item.  You definitely need heat to break
the factory threadlocker.  I used propane.
