Default 09+ lube/grease points??

whats up forum, i was wondering if any of you guys who know (or might be techs) know where there are grease fittings on these trucks, i know alot of stuff is sealed, but im sure somewhere in there, theres a little fitting dying for some grease!! im planning on taking off the tires this week and giving the chassis some TLC, any ideas on where they might be??

I haven't seen any grease fittings on the OEM parts. You may have grease fittings if the balljoints, tie rod ends or u-joints have been replaced with aftermarket parts.

Grease points are a thing of the past bro.. Everything is "sealed for life" these days even starting to do the granny's the same way by taking out dip sticks.. Dumb if you ask me

Pulled the dipstick out of the granny's?

My granny is pretty high mileage, but I've never had to check her oil...



FWIW- the lack of a dipstick for the transmission drives me bananas.

This post, lol'd!

Yeah another $10 per truck Ford saved, by not adding a Trans dipstick! See why Fords on top now, skip the small stuff=huge profits...

I couldn't find any fittings on my 150, funny, all the better quality aftermarket stuff has fitting. The last gen 250s and 350s did too, not sure about the current ones
