Lubricating Chasis?

Can anyone give me quick rundown on the important fittings to hit with the grease gun.

Thanks,
Frank

ball joints, ujoints. I think there is a few other points for the front suspension too. Just look for the grease nipples. Since you have a newer one, I am not sure if the driveshafts have nipples, but worth the look to make sure. Looseing a ujoint in a drive shaft is not fun....... been there, done that a long time ago

MY wifes 06 Lariat FX4 has no grease zerts of the front suspension
I believe this was an effort by Ford to ensure customers returned to their dealer for Front end maintenance.
Now on my work truck (see my gallery) I've switched all the ball joints and tie rod ends to MOOG brand. Much cheaper than Ford's parts and greaseable.

k2davis1,

You're not missing anything. By 06 maybe 05 Ford did away with all grease fittings, Makes no sense. Do yourself and your truck a favor and when it it time to do a front end job, replace em all with MOOG Parts. You can grease them as often as you like without busting the rubber boots like on older models. It just pushes out the old dirty grease.
