A good re-packing and checking is a great idea. You can do this by removing the entire axle. The manual will tell you how. Make sure you use a good spring compressor to hold the coil spring!
One thing to check is the condition of the needle bearings on the inside end of the axle, inside the cups. They can wear out. And- check for serious grooves were they ride- serious wear can occur there and cause shimmer, shake, and judder. You can swap them side to side and get some more life out the them. If you need a bit of detail on how to do any of this, let me know.
