Default Lubricate front shaft bushing- DIY Help

I noticed every 30k service they mention

Lubricate front shaft bushing
(I am not talking about 6 zerks fittings on 2 driveshafts)
I am assuming this is PITA, however, I found a tool slee sells it to make the job lot easier.

What are DIYer advice?
Also PO changes the CV boots recently, you think they performed this service?
