Without running outside to check I would say yes. IIRC there are 7 grease zerks up front.

Well mine don't, It looks like it has a plug on top, nothing on the bottom by the castle nut.

Depending on who makes them, there are two styles of that lower balljoint and because it's used in some applications where there is room for the grease fitting, they thread it for one.

The TJ uses much larger axle shafts that are closer to the lower, so if you get the ones that are threaded, you just grease them good when you install them, remove the zerk and install the plug.

this one is greasable....

if you pull the axle shaft, and install a zerk in place of the cap plug, pump er full of grease, then put the cap plug back in and the rest of the axle you had to tear down...
