Probably not. Most of the newer cars use sealed fittings

Thats what I was thinking. I would jack the car up and look. But, the garage floor is too cold!

No, we don't have them. Most new cars have "lubed for life" ball joints and tie-rods. Are they really "lubed for life"? Of course not. I just replaced a horribly squeaky tie-rod on my truck that was still "good" but was dry. It lasted 50K but would probably have gone to 80K had it had a 2 cent grease fitting. I think it's possible the auto mfrs found that many lube shops and dealers didn't bother greasing anything anyway so they figured - why waste the money on fittings. I've seen many dried-out front end parts that had fittings - someone was neglecting 'em.
