You have inner and outer tie rod zerks. Upper and lower balljoint. A few on the steering linkage that are hard to see from the bottom. If you remove the black plastic cover under there, it is easier to see. In hope this helps.

That seems to be a good way to see the Zerk fittings. Next time if I need to see the fittings, then I should take that advice too.
