    I am getting ready to drop in my Lockright, it says to coat the parts with "medium grease". What constitutes medium grease? Like lithium grease or...?

    I think the grease is just to kinda hold everything in place durin install and keep it a little lubed up till the diff fluid splashes it.

    pretty easy install... shouldn't take more than 2 hrs for your first time

    Hopefully less, its already torn down so all I have to do is install, just wasnt sure if there was a prefered type of grease.

    The only grease I have is Sta-Lube Marine Grease wich seems a little thick if you aske me.

    That should be ok. It's just to hold it together and provide lubrication untill the gear oil breaks down the grease.
