JK Lube

HOPEFULLY I'm asking for help in the right place. I am new to the JK squad and just got a 2011 unlimited sahara and love it. I got it with an already installed 2.5" Pro Comp lift but I think the previous owners drove it hard and put it up wet; meaning, I need some general maintenance done before offroad usage. First being a really good lube job. I have a grease gun and am willing and ready but not really sure where to start. Also, try to use simple lingo until I get accustomed to the Jeep language again

The stock components under the Jeep has no grease fittings. Only the aftermarket stuff dose.

I would suspect that the swaybar links would have zergs. Likely thats it. Depending on how complete the lift kit is you may have zergs on the lower control arms and/or track bar. If the driveshaft looks different than stock (3" roughly in diameter with some groves) then you might need to grease some u-joints on there.

If you don't know what those are check this link. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/jk-...ed-245491.html

I'm pretty sure the A arms are stock but I'm not sure about the rest. Thanks for everyone's input! Task at hand: locate some zergs! :-)
