I should lube the chassis on my 2004 F53 but I don't have a diagram showing the location of the fittings? Can anyone point me to this information?

If you have your Ford owners manual there is a diagram in it. Otherwise there are nine grease fittings all on the front end. Eight are very easy to locate, however many folks miss the ninth one, as it is not seen but rather must be felt for. Reach up on top the steering housing and you can feel a plastic cap. Unclip cap and there you have it.

Here's a link to a previous posting about the "9th grease fitting". Billarf supplied a diagram from Ford.
