Question type: General

sounds like your truck needs to visit a grease gun...sounds dangerous because tie-rod ends are "permanently sealed" but still wear just the same...it there was a grease zerk fitting, we could fix the "frogs"...see an alignment shop...they'll advise on what cannot be lubed and what needs to be replaced...the control arms should have a zerk...tie rods (not so much so)...the strut towers have a rubber piece too that may need replacement...seek an alignment shop, they will advise~

hello/??????

they are takin' away our guns (our grease guns) as bearings are "permanently sealed" makes my want to drill a hole and put a zerk fitting there~...sad state of affairs~
