Ford Ranger/Bronco II 1983-1990 Repair Guide

Chassis Greasing


Chassis greasing should be performed every 12 months or 12,000 miles (19,000 km) for most trucks. Greasing can be performed with a commercial pressurized grease gun or at home by using a hand-operated grease gun. Wipe the grease fittings clean before greasing in order to prevent the possibility of forcing any dirt into the component.

There are far less grease points on the modern automotive chassis than there were on trucks of yesteryear. The tie rod ends on these vehicles should be checked and lubricated periodically, and the front suspension should be checked for grease fittings.

A water resistant long life grease that meets Ford's ESA-M1C75-B specification should be used for all chassis greasing applications.

The following charts indicate where the grease fittings are located on the vehicle, and other level checks that should be made at the time of the chassis grease job.
