Most of these didn't have any fittings at all or if there were any it was just at the outer tie rod ends and lower ball joints. Most of the replacement parts do come with fittings but if yours are original yet there may not be any. There aren't any fittings anywhere else unless someone has replaced a u-joint which then might have one. Hope this helps a bit!

Where are the ******* on the front end to grease


It depends on the vehicle. Stating the make, model, and year would be a start.

If it's a newer vehicle, chances are there are NO grease fittings to be found.

Whereas an older vehicle from say the 1970's or possibly the 1980's will generally have grease fittings (zerks) on all the tie rod end, idler arm, ball joints, etc.

Hope this helps.

How many lubrication fittings are there on a 1999 Buick LaSabre?


if this has a conventional front end(not front wheel drive) then there will be one on each outer tie rod end one on each inner tie rod end, both upper and lower ball joints on each side, idler arm and pitman arm. if its front wheel drive it will have a rack and pinion steering. there for there will be one on each outer tie rod end and one on each lower ball joint, if they have grease fittings. so conventional steering has 10 fittings total and rack and pinion has 4 total.

What are the locations of the grease for the front end of 97 mercury sable..


You most likely don't have any grease fittings. Most front ends are "lifetime lubricated", and they save money by not putting zirc fittings on them.

Front end grease fittings


I replaced all of my joints, ball, tie rods, etc with grease fittings. If you can't see or feel them, there are none. You can try a grease needle that are sold at auto parts stores for cheap. You have to pierce the joints and inject them slowly. Eventually you'll have to replace them with joints that have fittings.

How many grease nipples does a ford maverick 1997 2.7td have and were are they located


By 1997 almost all cars were coming from the factory's without grease fittings, they had lifetime joints (haha). The only place you are likely to find any would be the front suspension, ball joints and tie rod ends. Most aftermarket suppliers still produce these parts with grease fittings so there are likely to be some fittings in the front end. Hope this helps.

Where are the grease fittings on the front end on my 2004 Pontiac Montana


many vehicles no longer have grease fittings. This does not remove the need for lube, however. When items fail be sure to install aftermarket parts (like Moog) and they will have grease fittings.
