Replacing the rotors and pads is a relatively easy job. But trying to grease the ball joints, tie rods and upper control steering linkage is he. I've come to the conclusion that people who drive a GM truck must pay a mechanic to work on it. Because if they did the general maintenance they'd never buy another GM truck. There's been nothing on this truck that has been easy to replace.
Those trucks weren't designed around ball joints and tie rod ends that were meant to be greased. Can't fault them for that.

Some peoe like to preach about greaseable parts, but they overlook the fact that you very often get 100+ thousand miles on the factory sealed parts, without having to fool around with the grease gun. That's a pretty decent service life if you ask me.
