Found the squeaking! .. now what???

Hey guys .. so after some serious deliberation and guys walking next to me as I drive, we figured out that the squeaking is coming from a rear control arm. There is a grease fitting on it, and it sounds like the rubber is dry and the squeaking is because there is no longer any lubrication.

So I went and bought a grease gun to pump into the fitting, and either the fitting was completely dry, or it isn't working. I pumped a good amount of grease into it and it still squeaks. I will take pictures if necessary.

How much grease is too much? Is that even the solution? Any help would be great!
