Subject: how many grease fittings?

Message:
How many grease (zerk) fittings are there on a 98 dak sport? Last time I had the oil changed in by a shop they said 5, then I looked back at the time before that and on the work order it says 7??? So which is it, 5 or 7? I have had the ball joints replaced and pretty sure they're the greasable kind. Figure 4 there, 2 for the tie rod ends, and then where's the last one? I have the ax1500 trans, 5spd, 2wd.

tie rod inners - 2
tie rod outers - 2
upper balljoint L/R - 2
lower balljoint L/R - 2
AND if equipped:
Idler arm @ tie rod (But not at frame?) if equiped
Pitman (may not have zerk installed) if equiped
FWD drive shaft (on 4x4 only)
u-joint (2 IF equiped with 2 ujoints)

Did I miss any? thats 12 for 4x4 and at least 9 for 2wd. They say to grease 'em every 6000 mi.

If you have r/p steering then it is only 7 if I havent missed any. Good to know! Now what is the torque on your thermostat cover??

I have a 97 DAK 2wd and it had 2 grease fittings until I replaced the lower ball joints(with grease fittings) so now I have 4.
