Grease fitting checklist

Hey everyone, trying to finish up with my maintainence and was hopping someone might have a list of the chassis / drive train grease fittings. After searching through the treads I didn't see anything. Also, what grease do you recommend?

Hello Greg:

For a 2001 Alpine you will find the following grease fitting.

Under the Coach on the Steering Colum there is one on the slip yoke and one in the small u-joint. On the break peddle assembly you will find one the pivot shaft. The drag Ling and tie Rod have grease fitting on each end. The King Pins have Grease Fitting on the top and bottom. Thatís all for the front end.

In the Rear you have the Drive Shaft U-Joints have grease fitting (Each U-Joint is crossed drilled and they have two grease fittings you only need to grease one) and one on the slip yoke.

The Manual recommends that the Drive Shaft U-Joint be greased every 3000 miles (Which I Do) and the Chassis I perform once a year.

That the complete list of grease fitting on a 2001 Alpine.
