Default Greasing the front end?

Hello I am wondering if there are grease fittings on the front of an 87 Supra. I can hear some creaking and my car sat for 7 or 8 years. I did a search on google and also in this forum but found no info. Thanks for your help. Scott

No, OEM units are not serviceable. Some aftermarket suspension members have grease fitting, but don't count on it.

Default Bushings

Thanks Cre, I took a look and it was like a female super hero,.... no nipples to be seen.

Anyway I called the Toyota service manager and he told me that what I am hearing is probably suspension bushings.

I went to AutoZone and bought a can of silicone spray lubricant and am spraying all the bushings down.

Any other suggestions to quiet any suspension? Thanks

Bandaid... not a fix. On the other hand when you find it you will find the source of friction which is causing the noise... Don't spray everything at once.
