Default 2000+ Grease (zerk) joint locations

Hi All,

While I was completing the oil change on my Aurora at 10pm last night, I wanted to also grease all the joints underneath like any responsible owner would do. However, in my limited view of the underneath, I couldn't find any!

Are there any grease joints on the 2000+ cars? (Note that Aurora and Bonne share the same chassis so thats why I'm asking here).

Chris

The tie-rods and balljoints that come from the factory are permanently sealed, i.e. no grease zerts. However, when you replace the balljoints and tie-rods, some aftermarket ones come with the grease zerts.

Thanks Matt, thats good to know. If you google zert and zerk, you get similar results. I think the names are synonomous with each other. Thanks for the response.
