Default chassis lube

10 years gone by and nary a lick of grease on this truck.

This should have been posted on the ram 1500 forum.
My mistake.
Maybe the moderators can move it.
Thanks for the reponse.

its not really a ram specific question, so no biggie. but if they are greseable you can grease them. otherwise inspect bushings and ball joints etc.

If the ball joints don't have a zerk fitting on them, chances are the are factory BJ's. And if there factory BJ's, then you should probably change them out. Other then that, like someone posted before, anything with a zerk.
