Only 3 Zerks?

I have a 2011 DC SB Auto transmission. I greased the shaft today but could only find 3 zerk fittings (one at each end of the shafts). You tube videos shows more for older models, but I could not find any more than the 3. Did I miss some?

Thanks

There is 5.

One on each U joint on the rear shaft and one inside each U joint of the front shaft.

Actually.....6 zerks. Although....some trucks might not have #6 - for the slip joint. Look for it....
And if you have the 6th zerk, don't over grease it. Jump pump it a couple times and call it good. Too much grease in the slip joint can cause some vibrations.

This thread should help
