E450 Chassis lube

Thanks IRV2 members. I've been a long time lurker. I was looking up suspension upgrades and came across a post about lubing the chassis. I never knew my E450 chassis had lube points. After reading the post I ordered a grease gun and lubed my chassis. Thanks for all the great info and advice!

Another E450 dude. Where did you lube? My Ford chassis manual does not mention grease fittings that one lubes. I have places that I have to monitor lubrications levels such as rear differentiational, transmission and engine.

Lost in space,

Here's a thread that I found a couple years ago that shows where to lube it. I found that using a small lube gun with a flexible hose made it fairly easy. You can turn the wheels one way or another to make it easier to access certain zerk fittings.

Ford has a separate MAINTENANCE/ LUBE MANUAL, believe the diagram is on this IRV2 FILES area?

Sorry, Twinboat, the Ford Diagram shows NINE GREASE POINTS, (including tie rods) though tie rod ends (may/ may not) have fittings.

The E450 has 4 grease points. One of those 4 grease points is a bear to get to. I ended up getting a 90 degree grease fitting adapter to get to that one fitting.
The F53 has 9 grease points.
