Nothing to grease as all the pivot points are enclosed and "lubed for life". I personally rotate my tires with every change. In fact, I JUST got done doing this an hour ago. While I had the hood open, I check the other fluids to make sure the levels were correct. That is about all I can think of, but maybe someone else has advice?

I would get used to checking everything. Well, everything you can see. Get used to what looks correct. If you notice something that doesn't seem right, then you can fix it. I usually go through and make sure all of the nuts and bolts are tight. You know, sit under the car for about 15 minutes nut'n bolt'n the chassis. We do it be for every run on the race car so once every few months on the street car sounds good enough for me.
