Got a 2005 titan and after replacing the rear diff with mobil 1 sny 75w140 thought I should get the grease gun out and see if all is well. But I was unable to find any grease fittings , not on any tie rods , ball joints , nothing. Are there any? Or will I only have them when I have to replace these parts at a later date?

newer cars trucks don't have grease fittings, you just have to replace the part when it goes bad, i was wondering the same thing when i was in school so i put it on a lift and i didn't see any. the only thing i didn't check is the drive shaft but i doubt it has any either. my dad had a 94 Toyota pick up, and it only has grease fitting on the drive shaft to the best of my memory.

There are none on the driveshaft either... "Maintenance free" is the catchphrase on cars these days. As was said, no fixing stuff, just replace it when it wears out.

Not Titan related.

My Durango has a step in the maintenance schedule to "Lubricate the propeller shaft." Well, I couldn't find a propeller. I don't even think there is any way for this vehicle to operate in the air on in the water.

Oh, and there are no grease nipples on the drive shaft either.

My 85 Toyota 4X4 had 14 grease fittings. My 2000 Tundra had zero fittings the same as my 04 and 05 Titan. The 07 Tundra has 4 fittings, one on each end of the drive shafts.

Did you know all Titans have a Turbine? I first saw this listed on the Cipher software, and totally did not understand. I thought maybe because Cipher works on Nissan Z cars, that it referred to the Turbo on some of them.

It is a part in our Transmission, has something to do with measuring slippage!
