zerks

I guess I'm blind but I crawled under my 07 Commander with grease gun in hand and can not find the zerks. They don't seem to be in the usual places. Where are these suckers hidden or is my Commander zerk free and requires no lube?

Yeah,
The old lubed for life deal.

I can't fiqure out, whos life? Mine, the vehicle, or the life of the part.

I sorta think option 'C' but the manufacturer spins it to make one think option 'B'
I however wish to vote for option 'A' because it would last that long if it had ZERKS.

LOL Rob

There are alot of places I can think of on the XK that there should be zerks especially the swaybars so you don't get that big CLUNK at full articulation.

There was a guy named Kleenex?


My favorite is John Crapper, an 18th century plumber who made a number of improvements to the "flushing water closet". Hence the euphemism "take a crap" on the "crapper".
