I have just received a pair of aftermarket ball joints with nipples in the top.

I haven't done Forester ball joints before, but it doesn't look like there is rooms for nipples about the joint (in the cup, where the pinch bolt is).

Is the correct course of action to grease through the nipple, then remove the nipple to fit the ball joints?

Wow that's weird, never seen a Subaru ball joint with grease fittings... How are you supposed to lube those on the car?

Remove them from the car.

I've only seen ball joints with zerks on the cheapest of the cheap parts for Subaru ($8 or $15 ball joints) Mostly because they are designed like this, which is useless.
