What thread are the fittings. SAE or Metric? I want to replace the 2 that are on top but I don't need to crawl under there twice.

Thanks

Wow am I glad I saw this post. Mine is 2 weeks old and I'm for sure going to grease it this weekend. I'm sure mine are bone dry.

I replaced those for the first time I greased my 2018 front end. I took one out and took that to the local auto parts jobber and they matched it up saying it was metric. Other than that I do not know the exact specifications. I was able to grease the rest of the fittings using a standard grease gun with a flexible hose and a straight end.

Unbelievable!
 
I just picked up my 2019 GMC 2500HD a couple of weeks ago and after reading this thread, I had to check the grease fittings on my truck. I couldn't believe it! I can't tell if the fittings are bone dry, by they're not "plump" as described in the thread. Anyone have a picture they can post on what a ball joint boot should look like?

All of the zerks on my 17 were bone dry when I got it home I greased it. Same with my 2015 and 2018 at work. Today while swapping tires, I decided to grease the old girl since I drove through a lot of water in CA two weeks ago. Idler arm is SHOT!!!! 29,500 miles.:wtf: I also noticed oil leaking from one of the rancho front shocks.

To the dealer on Thursday, service write said so how do I write this up? Steering feels loose? How about I was greasing what you guys don't and grabbed a hold of the wheel and saw play where there shouldn't be any..........

Are they going to warranty it?

Just greased all of mine. Fortunately the dealer had been hitting the easy ones - ball joints and tie rod ends, but I don't think the tough ones had been touched. They have been now!!
