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. 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..........

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!!
