    I like the Amsoil Moly Fortified. I use it in everything from birfs to bearings. Super good stuff. Robbie recommended it to me. HTH :cheers:

    X2 for the Amsoil in the birfs, and Mobil One Synthetic Red for the wheel bearings (remember wheel bearings also get repacked on this job). Then, high temp brake grease on the front caliper slide pins. So, I guess 3 types required. Then I grease my own palm with the $1000 saved....

    Haha, greasing your palm, funny but true. JMHO but skip the special grease for the bearings the Amsoil Moly is absolutly appropriate for wheel bearings. I even use it in the driveshafts now. You do need the special grease for the caliper slide pins and I use that on the antisqueel shims as well. :cheers:

    This is what I used in my bearing repack this weekend.

    Heard nothing but good about it.

    Guess we will find out.

    I used the Redline lube in my toyota mini axle birfs and it worked quite well. I don't know how it would work in the 80's since they are full time AWD but I imagine it would work fairly well.
