Grease fittings on 2018 1500 trucks

Recommended Posts

Are there grease fittings on the new trucks, or all the factory components sealed from the factory.  Cannot get a straight answer from dealer.  I am a handicapped person and cannot get under the truck to check. 

 

Thank you for all assistance.

Tie rod ends only. They were present when we leveled my buddies 2016 Z71 a few weeks back.

Probably a good thing that grease fittings are pretty much gone, because the lube part of oil change and lube at dealers is gone too to save them time and increase their margins. My 2005 K1500 has 11 grease zerks and if I want to ensure that it is properly lubed I have to drag my 70 yr. old bones underneath and do it myself. I grew up on a farm and that old machinery all had bearings that needed greased, most of the lunch break went to greasing bearings. As farm equipment manufacturers moved to sealed bearings, it improved farm productivity and I'm sure much better parts sales for their dealers.

Correct. That’s all there is on my 2018.
