Yes, there are grease fittings that should be serviced each time you do an oil change (or more often if necessary).

there are 7 in the front with zerk fittings that a normal grease gun work on...

it's in the FAQ at the top of the page that you should read...(although the pics don't seem to be active anymore, the list is there)...

so if grease comes out the sides whene greasing these joints, they need changing???
i dont see how grease cant come out, especially if you grease it every oil change like i do...the old grease has to go somewhere...

Some grease will come out. Don't grease them so much. I grease mine till they "pooch" a little, sometimes they leak out, I just wipe off the extra.

You can get the bushings at any autoparts store for pretty cheap, but the trick is getting the old one off and new one on, you need a pickle fork to get them apart.
