We're probably not on each other's Christmas card list but I still can help. If you over grease you'll just end up making a mess but it won't hurt anything. On my 15 there are actually only 7 fittings. None on the LCAs so yours may be the same. And do yourself a favor and either get a 90 degree fitting for your grease gun or swap out the fittings on the pitman and idler arms. Makes life easier.

Can't speak for any other 2015 (what op has) but my 15 Silverado has 7. Nothing on LCAs. I'm not sure if thats because I have lift spindles but I dont see why it would make a difference because both control arms are still factory.

Is this by chance your first truck?
This isn't my first truck, but my first diesel. I was just wondering if it's possible to overgrease the fittings. I've seen some guys on here saying they weren't properly lubed from the factory.

Would the AC Delco lithium chassis grease work?
