No chevy car/truck since 2001 has had a grease zerk from the factory. "lifetime sealed" balljoints, tireods and bushings.

Not everything about everything.

Just something about most things.

It is a symptom of age. You know everything, but then your brain gets too full and shorts out... they call that "alzheimers."

(That isn't the same as being 15-25 and THINKING you know everything...)

Now that you mention it, I do recall reading somewhere that there is a vacuum line you can pull to do it with.

OK, lets try this 2000 Chevy S-10 229,000 miles always use Mobile One and AC Delco filters. Has only had one tune up in its life and runs as good today as it did the day I drove it home and just as good gas mileage.

The truck has never been on an alignment machine. I got 80,000 miles on the factory rubber and the last tires I bought I got every bit of the 50,000 mile warranty out of.

That leaves 100K unaccounted for and I'll assure you your balljoints, tierods and draglink are worn. As well as pittman arm and probably steering box.

And if you've replaced any of those items and didn't get it aligned, there is no way you got 50K out of the tires. Wear and stacked tolerances do not allow it. Sorry.

I can technically be correct in saying my cars hasn't been on an alignment machine if I know how to run a tape measure, a few fishing poles and some duct tape

I did a tune about the 140,000 mark. Plugs,cap & rotor..
Tune up barely made any difference though ......

Delco filters are the best standard if you ask me ..
Way better quality then most people know about ...

I'v been getting around the 40 to 45 grand mile mark on a set of tires thus far ...

I'm very impressed with your tires dude ....

Who makes um ?
