Title: Dana 25 rebuild grease type
Post by: Alan on August 19, 2018, 06:38:59 PM
Hi all I am rebuilding my Dana 25 I have read loads of threads, I know what to fill my differential with, a hypoid gear lube. I know what to lube my steering knuckles with, I will be mixing corn head grease with 140w mixing till it is the consistency of molasses. But what I have never found listed is the type of grease to use when packing the bearings.
So that is the question I am looking to have answered. What type of grease should I pack the new king pin bearings with along with the hub, wheel bearings and inner and outer axle bearings?
Please help!
I am a willys novice as well as an auto mechanic novice.
Thank you in advance!

I just used a good quality hi-temp wheel bearing grease, some specify for disc brakes, some for drum, some for both. Not sure of the difference. Used it on the wheel bearings and the kingpin bearings.

This is just an example..there are many to choose from..Mystik JT-6 High Temp is another I see recommended.
