You should have one fitting on each upper and lower ball joint, (4 total), and you may or may not have fittings on each of the four tie rod ends. Don't overgrease any of them, they only need one or two strokes of the gun. I think that is all you have. Some cars have a fitting on each end of the upper A-arm, but GM generally uses a rubber bushing there instead, no grease required. The lower suspension arm to the frame is almost always a bushing and needs no grease.

You *might* have fittings on your driveshaft universal joints, although these need a special "needle" fitting to reach them. Most u-joints don't have fittings, however. If you have them, they are standard fittings located in one of the four inner "corners" of the joint, near the center.

How can I remove the pressed in grease fitting on a 1930 Ford


Grab it with a good set of vice grips and work it out, I have had grease fittings that won't take grease and some of them the parts had to be removed and the lube hole cleaned out. you can also buy a grease injector that is a hollow barrel with a plunger that fits down in it and you pull out the plunger fill the barrel with grease install the plunger, place the injector on the grease fitting and hit the plunger with a good size hammer

How many grease points and where are they


If you mean "grease fittings", none. By 1996 most cars were "permanently greased".

Where are the grease fittings on the front end on my 2004 Pontiac Montana


many vehicles no longer have grease fittings. This does not remove the need for lube, however. When items fail be sure to install aftermarket parts (like Moog) and they will have grease fittings.

Where are the grease fittings ?


Manufacturers generally removed grease fitting from suspension part back in the 80's. Some put a removable plug in the ball joints, tie rod ends, etc, which could be removed and grease fittings installed in their place, but most have sealed and permanently greased. In other words you can not lubricate any fittings. If parts go bad, the replacement suspension parts generally have grease fittings.

Is there any grease zirks on the 2008 Saturn astra?


Probably not. All the vehicles are getting away from putting in fittings. Any time I replace a component I make sure the replacement has grease fittings.
