Default chassis lube points

Does any one have a lube chart showing where the chassis is supposed to be greased? Or is it any on a C5?
Thanks

Well thanks Guys. Just wanted to be sure. I'm from the old school where you had to grease them about ever 1000 miles or so or the wheels would fall off.

Wheel bearings on the car are sealed units that will last the life of the car for most guys. However, if you track your car regularly, they develop play and will likely need to be periodically replaced. I change out my wheel bearings, which come as a composite unit complete with the ABS sensor, about annually. Their not cheap either, about $400 a wheel.

Are you buying them from GM? Why not use the ones from Autozone? Those come with a warranty so if they go out, just take them back and get replacements!

I guess they are just making all cars where you can't work on them! My son had the front wheel bearings replaced on his Grand Prix and the mech. said they were $250 per wheel, $600 parts and labor! I thought he was ripping us off till he said it comes in a complete unit with all that ABS Stuff on it!

I had been. Since I last bought a set, I've learned about the autozone ones. I may check them out this winter as I'll likely replace all four before next spring.
