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.

Will a 1988 Ford F 250 4 wheel drive drag link and tie rod ends fit on a 1988 Ford bronco 4 wheel drive? If so is the F 250 drag link and tie rods stronger or beefier than the stock bronco drag link and...

In general, the Ford Bronco running gear is identical to an F150 4X4 running gear for the same year. The only difference is the length of the rear drive shaft. I doubt the F250 gear will fit, since typically the F150 running gear is made by ford, and the F250 running gear comes from commercially available parts (Dana, etc).

I have a knockin noise when i turn a corner on the front end of my ford mondeo 2002. but goes away after bout 5 to 10 mins of driving. drags the steer wheel slighty out of my hand. had a new power steering...

I would have your tie rod ends check which are tied to your power steering rack. The end of the tie rods have bearings which can be exposed and they can lock which could cause the issues you are describing. Just take a quick look under your car/truck and look at them if you have a chance to see if the rubber boot has been cracked and the grease is exposed.

My 02' Escape XLS makes a loud sort of creaking when i turn the wheels. I checked to see if there was a nipple to grease it but i cant find one. The PS fluid is good. I don't know what it could be... Any...

On my 2002 Escape, it was the outer tie rod. It would squeak/creak when you turn the wheel and not even rolling. In park.
You can confirm by carefully touch the tie rod while someone else SLOWLY turns the steering wheel a LITTLE bit. The vibration will be obvious.
The OEM tie rod does not have a grease fitting, but it is fairly easy to replace. The aftermarket tie rods usually have a grease fitting.
The cost of the wheel alignment may be more than the cost of the tie rod.

Is the any parts to grease on my 2005 escape in the front end

There shouldn't be any tie rods or ball joints to grease, unless they have been replaced. Many aftermarket parts come with grease fittings, including the sway bar links, lower ball joints and outer tie rods.

My right tie rod squeaks when turning steering wheel

Does have lube point on it or it is still factory part.
Indication is that your tie rod end is dry inside, and need to be replaced.

2002 ford escape tie rod squeaks

My outer tie rod did the same thing when just out of warranty. I could tell it was "bad" by putting my hand on the tie rod while someone else turned the steering a little and I could easily feel the vibration.
Check the other side to feel the difference. Tie rods don't cost that much, if you can replace it yourself, and take a chance on foregoing the wheel alignment. Maybe a $150? job at the shop.
In my case, a tie rod was not readily available. I verified that it was a good joint; no shake or rattle. Then I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and put it back together. 70,000 miles later, the new tie rod is still on my shelf waiting for the squeak to return.

Am changing the inner tie rod on a 2000 cirrus with a 2.5 and cant figure out how to get old one off

to get the inner tie rod out you need an inner tie rod tool, it's a long tube that fits a 1/2 inch drive rachet and there's different size adaptors that go into the end of it to fit over the tie rod, find the right size put into tool, put over tie rod and brake it loose, reverse for installtion.

I get a squeaking noise when i turn the steering wheel right or left. replaced struts, and stablizer link rod on 2001 ford escape

I have a 2002 Escape V6. I had a squeak when turning... even when standing still. It was fairly low mileage: 40,000 miles?
It was the outer tie rod. You could feel it squeak in your hand while someone else turned the steering wheel.
I disconnected the tie rod. I wasn't worn, just squeaky. I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and worked it in. Reassembled and squeak gone.
I bought a replacement tie rod, but never had to put it on. I'm now at 110,000 miles.
