Unfortunately they pretty much have done away with any grease or zirk fittings, most suspension components today are non serviceable, however, using a white lithium spray lube has proven effective on suspension squeeks in most cases. The noise you are hearing over bumps is probably caused by the springs rubbing on thei isolators. A little lube usually makes it go away. However most of the aftermarket replacement parts do supply grease fittings.
