I got some new Noltec upright replacements with the ball joints fitted, just wondering what grease to use on the upper ball joints as they have grease nipples, so I assume I'll need to grease them...

Hmmm, I hope they already come greased up cause I replaced one of mine and didn't put any grease in it and mine had nipples.

They have minimal grease in them from new. Just use blue grease or regular grease.

Yeah was going to mention not to put too much as the boot may split. Just enough so as the boot feels firm.
