: Chassis Components That Need Lubing For An 06 Escalade?

I've searched all over the darn place but can't find any specific info on Escalades. The manual says to:

Lubricate the front suspension, ball joints, steering
linkage, transmission shift linkage, and parking
brake cable guides.

Now I've seen the below guide but that's not for the 06 model Escalade. I also don't believe that guide shows where or how to lube the steering linkage, transmission linkage, and parking brake cable guides.

Can anyone elaborate further on these lube points?

Thanks

Most any all purpose grease should work, but its a Caddy. Use Mobil 1 Synthetic. She will love u for it

Dropping my lade off for an all wheel alignment tomorrow, going to ask them to grease all the zerk locations, hopefully all my suspension stuff is good to go as well. She been pullin to the left on the highway a touch.
