Can someone tell me, or better yet pictures, where the lube points are under the truck.  I seem to remember reading some where that there are 6 points.  True?  Where are they?  Thanks.  Any particular type I should use?

I've got 11 on mine.

4 total for upper and lower ball joints
2 for outer tie rod ends
2 for inner tie rod ends
1 for pitman arm (I think it's the pitman arm.  Pass side tight spot)
2 for I can't remember where off the top of my head.

Hope it gets you started at least.

There is a great site floating around here somewhere with good pics, I just dont have it right now but I am sure someone will post it soon. There are actually 11 I think, 3 in each wheel, 2 on two little arms going out, and 3 more under the skid plate that can be tricky to get to, but arent too bad with a long hose.

Thanks for the help guys.  It would be great if someone posts the pictures.  What type of lube should I use?

I forget what little codes the manual says. But I just find any with those codes, some use synthetic, some dont. I havent had any problems with non synthetics so far!

Okay, so I've been searching the forums for a while with no luck finding a howto and pictures for a newb wanting to do his own lube jobs. This was the most promising thread so far that I've found but the link is dead! :cheers:

The 11 fittings are easy to find. It helps to turn the wheel to get at some of them.

There are eleven. The link above (Tech article) does a good job of showing you where they are. Make sure you find all eleven; some are very hard to get to.

My dealer and their mechanics told me there were only ten. Totally wrong. I have a 2000 Suburban 1500 2wd.
2000 Suburban 1500 LT, 5.3L, 4.10 rear axle, tow package, at, ac/heat front and rear, barn doors (love them). Totaled by another driver texting and rear ending me at 40 MPH.

2004 Suburban 1500 LT, 5.3L, 135,000 miles, Stabilitrak, Sunroof, Flex fuel, 3.73 rear axle, tow package.
