1.  On the very bottom end of the Steering box under the motor , there are some teeth/gears/  ?    that are visible but no place to grease them  ;   would it be a good idea to use some spray grease on them ?
 
2.  What can be used on the rubber grommets for the suspension ?   Silicone Spray ?
 
3.  What about the rear Trailing Arms....how can they receive some lubrication ? 
 
4. Any other tips for lubrication of other components that don't have a grease fitting ?
 
Thanks,  Dave.

1.  Are you referring to the splines on the shaft that the pitman arm is attached to?

Im talking close to the bottom of the Steering Box just above the huge nut that's on the bottom -- you have to prop your head up a bit to see the teeth/splines.  They are small and it seems to me they should receive some kind of lubrication.    The arm that comes off the very bottom of the Steering Box is attached to the power steering telescopic cylinder (for lack of a better term) .  But its the teeth/splines im speaking of close to the bottom of the Steering Box under the motor .
 
Also,  shouldn't we be spraying some kind of lubrication on the Rear Trailing Arms on what they move on ?

The splines you see on the shaft coming out of the steering box mate with the splines in the pitman arm. No lubrication required. The trailing arm bushings are similar to the control arm bushings and require no lubrication.
