Ford 450 Super Duty chassis Drive Shaft

I have a Ford 2006/2007 450 Super Duty chassis with about 15000 miles on it. Is there any maintenance that needs to be performed on the drive shaft at this stage of the game?

Some will take the shaft out after 75-100k miles and put lube on the splines of the shaft(2 piece shaft). If you do this, there are alignment markers(usually paint on Fords) that must be lined back up when putting it back together as it is balanced in that position. If you get the alignment off, it will ruin your mid bearing and your u joints. I had this problem with our county shop after taking out our F450 ambulance's shafts for various reasons.

The owners manual has the checklist of what needs to be checked every so often. So many things !
