Hmmm not sure John, I would have to look in the book.
But when you find them all, can you document it for me :D

Tie rod ends and ball joints if they have lube nipples (can we say that here?)

The front A arms and suspension are dry.....are the rear arms lubed? have to check.

come on Brad, you can do it :D

I can't think of a single suspension piece that requires lube. Maybe it's because my brain is fried, but on my own, I added poly sway bar bushings and they require grease as to not squeak.

ETA, ok, the rear pin that goes through every part of the lower suspension should be lubed with anti-seize. But it is not a general maint item.
