Just did an oil change on the escalade with 5w-30 mobil 1. I was wondering how to lubricate the chassis. According to the owners manual, this should be done every oil change. I do own a grease gun but I dont know how and where to grease on the escalade. I've only grease trailer wheel bearings before.

I did notice a zerk fitting on the tie rods, do i grease until grease purges out or till the boot is firm.

Picture would be nice

Thanks for the help!

Yes I grease every oil change, there are not that many grease fittings (forget off the top of my head maybe 4-6 of them tops) I also have them on my aftermarket (Hotchkis) sway bars. I use a compressor operated grease gun only because it the only thing that holds up to pumping synthetic grease, usually two to three pumps or trigger pulls depending on the type of gun you have, you will see it just start to come out of the "cups", if too much comes out just wipe off the excess so it does not fling off.
