No required fluid or grease additions to the 126 boots. However to lenghten the life of the boots consider buying 303 Aerospace Protectant and spraying the boots with the prtectant. It is designed to preserve rubber. YOu can usually find it at RV stores, They recomment spraying it in tires to prevent UV damage and dryrot on the tires. The verylarge bus RVs can have a $4000 for tires. Good idea to rpreserve those babies. I have used it on the TD and it seems to make the rubber softer and pliable. I did the boots when I rebuilt the rear suspension.
