Grease fittings

I have located the following grease fittings:

3 on each of the right and left front A arms

2 on the front drive shaft U joints

2 on the rear drive shaft U joints.

Am I missing any?

Could any one tell me how they access the rear drive shaft front U joint fitting. I can't seem to get access to that U joint from any angle. It is too far forward to get at easily.

Thanks!

I had my engine covers off to grease the u-joint from the passenger side.

i had the engine cover off from the passenger side and I still could not get to it. I guess I will have to work harder at it. Nice to know that it is possible to get to the fitting from the passengers side.

Here's what mine looks like with the cover off, and you still couldn't get to the zerk? I don't know what to tell ya. I don't think your taking the right panel off. When and if you take off the right panel, take note of the rub point circled in red. Put something around the radiator hose to protect it. Check for that shaft bolt too. Their known for coming loose and going bye bye. Mine was missing from the get go. I found it laying on the skid plate.
