Default chassis lubrication

i looked in my haynes manual on how to perform a chassis lubrication and it isn't very helpfull about the location of the nipples. i was wondering if anyone has a decent description of their locations or maybe even pics. i own a 2000 ws-6. thanks

There aren't any fittings to lube. You would have to put them in yourself.

no grease fittings on an LS1 f-body unless you have aftermarket suspension parts.

Doesn't the driveshaft have one near the u joint? May never need greasing but I thought I saw one there when I had it out.

i know that there are only fitting on aftermarket parts but i was also told that you must install the fittings yourself. i guess i worded my reply wrong when i asked for the location of the fittings. i meant to ask where i would put the fittings when i got them. thanks

You are going to go buy fittings,then drill holes and tap them to
install fittings? Sounds like a PIA!

I have Haynes and factory manuals and rarely use them anymore.The single most valuable sorce of info is THIS website!There probably isn't one single repair that hasn't been done and documented by members here.Along with installuniversity and LS1howto we got it all!!
