Grease

What kind do you use? Do you spend the $$ on synthetic stuff or do you grease on the cheap?

I run into a lot of water so I use the synthetic in my driveshaft u-joints. It just seems to hold up better. The wheel bearings get repacked after every few trips so I use what is on hand or cheap.

Doesn't marine grease burn up in wheel bearings though?

I would rather spend a extra couple bucks on red and tacky than replace wheel bearings

I recommend Cat Ultra 5 Moly Grease, contains 5% moly, water resistant against fresh and salt, designed for high-speed/high-load applications and offers corrosion protection.

I just run standard on pretty much everything, except for my CTMs. Although, I re-grease very regularly. I run whatever that synthetic green monkey snot excuse for grease that Jack recommends on the Ctms.

Green Grease specs out a little better than Red N Tacky but I doubt you'd ever notice a difference.

Muh...I use cheap marine wheel bearing grease and CRC moly grease for my birfields. My real secret is that I don't use greasable tie rod ends, balljoints (on my daily driver), u-joints, etc. Why? Because I have not seen ANY gain in longevity with the greaseable units. I happen to believe that keeping the parts seals so water can't get in and grease get out is just as effective as greasing them ever 3000 miles. I'm probably going to get blasted for that opinion, but look at factory rigs. Balljoints typically last 100,000 miles on a front wheel drive car. You put greasable Moogs in which are a quality product and you're replacing them again at 150,000 miles. I'm just sayin'......

Jess from High Angle recommends Prolong in the 1410 CV in my front shaft, so I'm running that in my shaft, Lucas Red and Tacky everywhere else.
