Ok mate well ive bought mapco parts for the top and bottom ball joint which have a grease nipple

Febi for the inner track rod which had no nipple

And key parts for the outer which has a thread for a nipple but for some reason has just came with a bolt in the hole....

What is the plus if having a nipple as surley the grease cant go any where once in ?

I found my top and bottom ball joints lasted a lot longer with grease nipples. Twice as long I reckon

Ok thanks guys well the mapco top and bottom ball joints have grease nipple...
But the febi inner and mapco outer tie rod end dont.

None at euro parts have nipples and until working on a l200 ive not came across a nipple on these joints before so for the track rod joint i likey just keep to no nipple

Thanks for your help
