Hi Scotty,

Thanks for all the help you've provided to me so far via your youtube channel! I have two questions for you. The first is regarding my 2016 ford F150. I notice when I'm under the car that there are absolutely no grease zerks or obvious lubrication points (you've mentioned this in one of your videos). A website I stumbled upon describes a Ford tune-up as having suspension/ ball joint/ U-joint lubrication as part of the job. If these components are all enclosed or have no fittings, would they actually get lubricated if I were to take it in for a service check or is this outdated information? If so, how does one actually lubricate joints, bearings, or bushings (not just the rubber components) on a modern truck? Sounds like they're designed for failure as the wear indicator... The second question I have for you is about U of I. I understand you're a University of Illinois graduate, and I'm curious what your degree was in/ were you involved in any on-campus organizations if you'll disclose that. I just finished up UIUC with a degree in ChemE, but I swear I like working with tools and machinery more than chemicals and automation technology. Thanks again for all the awesome advice!


No. 1-1

they are not made to be lubed, but rubber bushings can be sprayed with stuff like AT 205 reseal that rejuvenates rubber parts. I was doing my Phd in anthropology at U of I waay back in the seventies. I was writing about a motorcycle gang I rode with. Strange world indeed, now I made videos helping the world out with their car problems. who knew?
