moog sway bar front links

I just had the moog sway bar links installed with a new sway bar up front. Are the links greased from the factory or do I need to do it now?
I have ones with the nipples.

I got the ones from AutoZone that are supposedly rebranded Moog. Mine also have grease zerks (that's what they're called, FYI) and they were already greased.

I started to put grease in one and about half a pump later grease was coming out the boot. If in doubt, just pick up a grease gun and some grease because it's pretty cheap and try to put some in em!

the grease in there is packaging and assembly grease to prevent corrosion to ball and socket while sitting on a shelf for God knows how long.

If you do not grease them when installing they will last a total of about 3 pot holes/bumps

I highly recommend the Moog sway-bar endlinks. Grease them with a good grade of synthetic grease since you are waaaay up North.
