If the boot is sound, don't mess with it. The proper amount of grease is still there. There are many different types of grease on the market, a number of which might be suitable for CV joints. Mixing in an incompatible grease could cause oil separation or worse. When you do re-pack a CV joint, it is important to remove ALL the old grease first so there is no possibility of a compatibility issue with the new grease.
