A lot of complaints about creaky pivots, and a solution is to grease the pivot shaft so it does not become seized to the inner bearing race.

This may be stupid... but if you grease the interface between the shaft and the inner bearing race wouldn't that promote movement between this interface, then when the grease wears/washes away, the creaks come.

Isn't the whole idea, that movement should take place within the bearing and not in the shaft/inner race interface. This is crazy but, It almost seems better if the shaft was seized to the bearing.

Any thoughts?
