    Should I be putting Moly or standard grease in the u-joints and steering components? I though the only place moly is needed is the front axle knuckles, but apparently Mr. Haynes thinks otherwise. ???

    Ok, well let me rephrase-are there any places you SHOULD NOT put moly grease? If there aren't then why not just run moly grease in everything? It sounds like a better grease. I currently have two guns one for standard lithium and another for moly-lithium, and both are crappy and am looking to replace with a good pnuematic gun. Would like to only need to buy one pnuematic gun and not two.
