    The grease is applied to new seals to keep them from burning up during the first few drives on them.

    It is a good practice to ALWAYS apply a coating of grease to rubber/neoprene seals before installing them.

    Or you can use some petroleum jelly on new seals and o-rings to keep them pliable.
