    I'm in the process of reassemling my front axel. In the write up in the fAQ it looks like synth grease is used in the birf and moly grease is used in the knuckle housing. Won't these two types of grease mix and mess each other up?

    Moly in both birf and knuckle housing. There are synth moly greases - perhaps that's your confusion. I use synth moly.

    Oh I missread the FAQ. Moly Grease for the Birf and Knuckle. Synth for the Bearings. I guess that is okay then.
