Is there a (Truck) Doctor in the house??...

....who knows how many lube fittings there are/might be under the truck?

I have had mechanics keep it lubed until now. I know the guy who sold me the truck said a couple of the fitting locations were recessed and herd to get to. I have the flexible tip for the grease gun, and the truck is up on auto ramps waiting to be greased!

Bonus question: Is it harmful to the sidewall of my Michelin to be "bunched up" a little on the outer edge of the auto ramp- for a day or so?

BTW - It is a Diesel, if that matters.

Grease fittings from memory.. lower ball joints, upper ball joints, outer tie rod ends, inner tie rod ends, pitman arm, idler arm 2, Frt driveshaft slip yoke. The only tricky one is the idler arm body, it requires removing the 2 bolts from the frt. stone gaurd which pivots out of the way.
