Thread: Grease Zerks?

  1. #1

    Default Grease Zerks?

    Proud new owner of an 04 2500HD
    First exposure to the "replacable wheel bearings"
    I have a 2 WD, 5 speed.
    I assume there is NO repacking of spindle bearings? Are there even grease zerks anymore?
    How about the tie-rods?
    Better yet, let me ask this>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Where, if any, do I perform routine service. i.e. Are there zerks on the steering arms?
    Anywhere else? suspension?
    Maybe I'm old school, but I like the idea of repacking bearings and hitting all the joints with the trusty grease gun.
    Thanks guys.

    Every time you change the oil you should grease all grease fittings, and check fluid levels in axels.
