Grease everything under the front, and check the little plastic pads in the rear leaves.

AFAIK They are all zurk fittings.

Where exactly they are, not sure, I always find myself spending a few minutes finding mine when I grease it up.

I've used the red grease in previous vehicles, don't remember what it's called.

Now I just use regular black grease. If I remember correctly it's some kind of Ford Lincoln grease you can pick up at Advance, in tube, and in a little tub.

I grease every few thousand miles, or if I get the truck really submerged.

I have a slight squeak coming on now, I haven't greased the front end since I replaced all the steering parts under 4k ago.

Regular out black lithium tube grease. In a grease gun of course. The tube grease is bearing grease for packing bearings. I think they sell chassis grease as well but I have never used it.
