Why would you want to re-grease the CV joints if the boots are OK? The grease already there will far outlast the boots. The grease is special grease and the boots are completely packed with it. If you put in the wrong type of grease you could do more harm than good.

I think you're wasting your time. There is no requirement in the service manual or owners manual for replacing CV joint grease. The grease will far outlast the boots. It makes sense to replace the boots, though. The boots come with the right grease (if you buy OEM boots). But then you have to remove the axles.
