How do I push grease into the shoes of the ball joints on my 1984 300D? (I can't see any grease nipples for this purpose!!) What kind of grease should I use?

Not designed to be greased. Sealed component. If they wear out, gotta get new ones. If they are aftermarket, they may have a plug in the lower center of the joint. If so, remove this plug and replace with a Zerk fitting.
