Speaking of, can someone clearly show where all the grease points are on our trucks? If there is already a thread out there, please point me in the right direction. This is something I need to do soon.

Ok, so I have a late model 06 (manufactured NOV 06) Chevy with an 07 LBZ under the hood. My concern is that I have this grinding noise coming from underneath my rig. I originally thought it was the brakes, but when I pulled off the tires I heard and found nothing unusual. I got a wild idea and thought I would check my front and rear differentials, and found that they were low on fluid. I am enroute to the parts store to get the 75W90 that it requires. Should I be changing my transfer case fluid as well or?? I also read a thread on here about pump knock, should I be concerned about this with an 06 or forget about this?

It wouldn't hurt to change the T case fluid. I think GM recommends 2 qts of ATF in the T case, but there are lot's of threads on here about guys running 3 qts of 5w30 syn. I have the pump rub upgrade in my case and I also run 3qts of syn 5w30. Also if it was me I would change the front and rear diff fluid too since you're picking it up anyway. 2qts front and 4qts rear. I'm not saying this will fix the grinding sound though.

Edit: Here's a thread about running 5w30 in the T case:
