grease fittings

Postby matheny9 [OP] » Aug 27 2010, 5:15pm

Are there any greasable fittings on the 2010 Silverado "a" arms or any of the knuckles on the front end? I have only found fittings on the steering rod end.

Does it show it in the owners manual? They are available on here.

For what year? They are probably the same but you have 2010 in your post and 2009 in your profile fields.

Sorry, I have a 2010, but had a 2009 when signing up, but don't know how to change profile. Owners manual does not show where any greasable fittings are.

I was unsure too with my 2007.5 Silverado 2500HD some guys were saying 5 grease zerks and some were saying 11 grease zerks.
I finally just went ahead and started looking for them. I only found 10
Lower ball joints, L & R =2
Upper ball joints, L & R =2
Tie Rod End Links L & R =2
Inner links L & R =2
Idler arm and pitmin arm=2
-----
=10
I checked Universal joints, shifter linkages, steering column shaft. didn't see any.
I'm still a little concerned I'm still missing the eleventh grease zerk.

BTW I'm gonna replace the grease zerks on the pitmin arm and idler arm to the 90 degree zerks. Those were rugged to reach.
And having the 3 foot grease gun extension was a great investment.

The 11th fitting is actually on the drive shaft about half way back, just past the support bearing, pointing straight down. Just found this afternoon.

I have searched high and low on my 2010, and have only found 2 grease fittings (zerks).

Would those fittings be the same on the 1500?
