    What kind of grease should I use to do the driveshafts?
    U-Joints?
    Other Parts?

    White Lithium? Or what?

    I use a marine grease it helps to keep the moisture out.

    The marine grease is blue, BTW, and is available in tubes for your grease gun. Usual usage is wheel bearings on boat trailers.

    I use the same grease on my truck that I use on my backhoe. I figure if it's tough enough to protect a John Deere, then it's tough enough for a Blazer.

    I've used a couple different brands. At present I'm using Rotella something or other. It's made by Shell.
