Question Grease Fittings

Have A '98 Ford Explorer. Can Anyone Tell Me Where The Grease Fittings Are (if There Are Any)? I Feel That You Should Be Able To Grease Some Of The Moving Parts Underneath The Vehicle, But I Can't Seem To Locate The Fittings To Do So.
Any Help, As Usual, Is Greatly Appreciated.

Unless there are some after market parts on it (ball joints/ujoints, etc.) there would be none.

Hope this helps,

Bob

Red face grease fittings

I started reading some of the other posts( which i should have done first) and was surprised to see that there were no fittings as you said in your response,Bob. Thanks for the reply. Now I can stop looking!!

My 87 Ranger doesn't have any either. The ball joints are rubber encapsulated. The rest of the stuff you used to find grease zerks on are all sealed. I guess they saved some money that way.

My u joints have held up OK (200,000), but the ball joints needed work at 100,000. I always thought - if you need to keep it, you need to grease it.

Later,

Bob
