    I was wondering if anybody had a diagram of all of the Lube points on my 85 k5, especially all of the steering stuff.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know if there's a diagram or not. All I can say is that every pivot point should have one (not counting the pitman arm).

    Every tie rod, bushing (if their greasable) and u-joint. You've got at least 6, if not 8 or 10 u-joints to grease.(depending on your driveshafts and what not).

    While your at it, repack those bearings!

    The upper ball joint usually can be greased, you just have to remove the plug, grease it, and put the plug back in, which is tricky to do with the axle shaft in the way.

    I've always just stuck a needle in. Bad idea?
