    Anyone know how many grease fittings to grease on the front suspension of a 95 Silverado K1500? I can only find 6, but I was thinking there were more? Someone with knowledge of this please let me know!

    4 on ball joints
    2 outer tie rod ends
    2 inner tie rod ends
    2 idler arm
    1 pitman arm

    the idler arm is one of the hardest to get to if you have the skid plate
    if you do
    unbolt the front skid plate(one that angles up toward the radiator)
    idler arm is on the right side (left as you face it from the front)
    the grease fitting is located about in the middle of the idler arm (upper portion)

    if you go to a local auto parts store and get the slide on fitting for the grease gun it works great for those hard to reach places

    cant seem to get the link to work right but if you click on grease gun accessories its the first one listed
