1950 chevy 3100 stock suspension

I have redone all my suspension components. I forgot to get grease zerks. When I look these up I'm seeing two different sizes. And I think I need a 90 degree fitting because of adding disc brakes. The Y that is added on the back of the driver wheel looks like it would be a tight fit.

How many of each size do I need for front and rear?

Once we find out sizes , wouldn’t it be nice to convert some to 45 or90 degree units for better access? I hate having to fight with the inaccessibility of some of them!

I can take a peek at mine this weekend. I have a CPP disk kit on my solid axle front end.

Are the different sizes I'm seeing, one size for steering joints and the other for suspension?

Buy an assortment kit and use what you need now and use others later for the next project. They’re not so expensive.

The genuine Alemite ones have a red check ball.
