No grease fittings. The factory bushings are rubber. These are polyurethane, they'll last a lot longer.

I wish I had my old ones that I had to press out to install the energy bushings but If I remember, the stock bushings are not rubber. They are pretty much a balljoint. The only part that is rubber is the outside which keeps the grease in. IMO the stock links are better that the energy bushings and allow less play because of the stock balljoint type design. I ended up going back to new stock links.
