That correct, they are lubed for life. The connection is covered
by a sheath, as long as that cover remains in tact
you will not have a problem. I own a 1971 Ford with 290K
on the clock and it still has the complete original front
you can still manually grease certain components, just because there isnt a
grease nipple doesnt mean they are maintainence free, we all know that if a
track rod end boot splits its going to lose its grease, and so lead to
premature wear, but if you regrease and fit a new boot it should be ok, i
agree the grease nipple forces the grease directly into the joint, whereass
you may have to manually work it down there, but by no means should these
such items be labelled as maintainence free.
having said that, obtaining replacment boots rather than the complete sealed
joint may prove more of a problem, we live in a disposable world

No, Greece is a country in Europe. Grease is what you use for
lubrication. Greese is anybodys guess.
