Lubrication points

my 2005 F-150 Screw Lariat has now about 8000miles. I was wondering what parts need to be lubricated with a grease gun (do you called it a grease gun in English -- I'm orginally from Finland so my English is...what it is).

Great truck -- all my family and 4 dogs fit in well and still room for a lot of stuff...

Thanks for advice.

WOLFDOG-- Ford truck front suspensions are supposed to be sealed, and therefore do not have zerks (grease fittings for the grease guns). There is no way to grease the joints or moving parts on Fords. But, there is always the possibility there might be (1) or (2) zerks on some models on a certain steering arm or other place. Ask your dealer about this or make a good visual inspection, if you don't see any zerks you don't need your grease gun because it was lubricated at the factory and then sealed.

Thanks a lot.

I will have a closer look. I owned a GMC Yukon (1998) and the Workshop manual showed several lubrication points...that's why I asked this question

But I guess one can't compare a Yukon to F-150...
