I just ordered a set of moog Tie rod ends for my 2006 E. I noticed there is grease in the bottom metal piece, but the rubber part up top is empty? I can just squeeze it down and there is nothing but air in there. Should I fill these with grease? I remember someone saying that these tie rod ends were pretty decent and you can "repack" then with grease. Are they talking about the bottom piece with the tiny hole or the entire tie rod end/bushing?

Hi,
Sometimes or most of the time you have to install the grease fittings...
Which should of come with the tie rod ends.
If you keep them greased they will last longer than OEM's!
MOOG is good stuff!

So should I install the grease fitting and leave it there? Or is it just to put in to refill with grease when needed? And I'm still confused if I should put grease in the upper boot that has none in it? The bottom part is "prepacked" the upper boot is just empty lol.

Hi
I would say put them in and leave them as long as they are not in the way of anything!
The grease fittings of course!
