Grease fittings

Help? new cars do not come with grease fitting on the steering assembley, at what point do you have the plugs removed and grease fitting installed.

You won’t find zerk fittings for greasing on new vehicles. They come from the factory with what are called CHEAP!

You have two choices. Run the component until it wears out, and then replace it with a component that comes with a zerk fitting for greasing. Or, obtain a grease gun needle greaser.

I’d wait 'til the component wore out, and then replace it with one that can be greased.


It’s not new, my 1983 Mustang GT did not have grease fittings. Tester’s suggestions are right on.
