Bram was kind enough to make some for my SH:

They look great.

One thing I might look into is some kind of 'dust boot' over them - perhaps a zip-tied mtb tube - so they don't need to be re-greased.

Dust boots are available for these joints. But are stupidily expensive. To the point where it puts the price per pair over $200. And i havent found a lack of boot to be a problem yet. The joints have proven to be very reliable and robust.

In the time Ive been using them / selling them, I havent had a single joint failure. I lnfact, I have only had one return, which was from me accidentily specifiy incorrect torque, which resulted in the fasteners literally squashing the spacers, before then stripping the threads.

Technically speaking, the joints do not need greasing. The kevlar reinforced teflon liner will self lubricate the joint. But I personally will always wipe the joints downs and give them a quick spray with CRC when ever im under the car. And i always do the same before sending them out. This is mainly to keep em fresh. The body of the joints is cro-moly steel, and the ball is precision ground heat treated, hard chromed bearing steel.

From the look of the bottom picture - the alloy tab will rip off the alloy lower control arm before those end links break!
