Default Grease fittings

Got a new grease gun for Christmas so I thought, hay, I'll grease my fittings. So looked around a bit but didn't see any. Didn't spend much time looking, but are there fittings on a 97? Dont want to spend to much time looking if there are none. Thanks.

Have a look on the top of the tie rod ends, and on the upper most front of the ball joints, the rears should be the same. I know mine does, and mine are still OEM.

Yep, tie rod ends and ball joints have zerk fittings as Matt says. If you don't see them, they may be caked with debris, then a little "clean-up" should reveal them.

I figuered they were there, I just didn't go so far as to remove the tires to have a good look. I just stuck my head under the car and did a quick look. Qold weather tends to make me spend less time looking.

Its almost a PITA, or atleast I found. I am lucky though, I can use a hoist at work for things like that, up on jackstands with the wheels turned should work well though.
