Nose Gear Noise

Nose gear making some noise, any recommendations? If it needs grease, what is best type to use? I noticed my D55 has fewer grease fittings than other Barons/Bonanzas.

In the lubrication chart for the Barons, the nose gear swivel points are supposed to be greased, suggesting Aeroshell 22, at 100-hr intervals. The problem is that TE-301 thru TE-985 cannot be 'greased' unless the nose gear is disassembled, so that area is often overlooked. On those aircraft, this note under servicing applies: "Any parts that rotate or slide (metal to metal), and have no other provision for lubrication must be lubricated with SAE 20 or SAE 10W30 oil." This same lubrication note applies to the main gear pivots on the extruded gear, as well as the slide tubes on the retract rods.
