    Default Grease Fittings

    I found them guys, only 2 fittings on tie rod ends at the wheels, also I noticed no drain plug on the rear like my 02 Silverado had. Just a fill plug. The Trans pan looks easy to remove when the time comes. All in all maintenance looks a little better then my 2002 Silverado 4X4

    ippielb, On my 2002 Silverado Ext 4X4 I greased something like 10 or 11 fittings every year for 9 years and the front suspension on my new 2011 silverado
    is not the same, GM made a major change at some point. I will get a Haynes or factory manual.

    Thanks, I know I find it's hard to believe, but it is only 2. One on each tie rod end.

    It's well worth it. I shared that trick with a friend of mine who is a mechanic while discussing steering wheel moan with him ... and he thought it was brilliantly simple/easy/effective.
