Anyone think the 2 damaged grooves will cause a problem in the near future?

BTW the Advance Auto Doorman kit I bought came with 3 oz (88ml) of grease with no mention of wether it had Molybdenum Disulphide or not. The Bently manual said cars up to 2001 (mine) take either 90ml, 120ml or 140ml of grease. So... I actually need more according to the manual. I think it was enough grease and doing the job over will let me add more.

I watched this helpful video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFpHkvUs65k and he mentions switching sides to make the axle joints now press against the opposite (clean) side of their friction surfaces. Since I'll be doing the drivers side again I wonder if I should do the passenger side outer pre-emptively and switch sides?
