The part you are replacing is the stabilizer link. There are only 2, one on each end of the bar. Regreasing is not really important, as the part does not rotate much. I replaced one of mine years ago, due to a branch flipping up and cutting a rubber boot on one end. The link is aluminum and should not rust. The internal ball ends are steel, but the boots should keep them nice and dry.
