Where are all of my grease fittings???

I went under my 2001 Explorer Sport 4X4 today to lube the grease fittings and could not find any.
The Haynes manual says to lube the tie rod ends and the pittman arm. I didn't see any grease fittings anywhere.
Anyone got any idea where I should have grease fittings?

If you have Ford factory tie-rods and ball joints you do not have grease zerks. They are sealed units and you can not grease them.

Second, you do not have a pitman arm. This is for first gen and Rangers only.

P r i c k me, do I not bleed Ford Blue.
