I'm changing the oil seals on my 2255 4WD front axle this weekend and was wondering what type of grease everyone is using in the axle joint housings? The stuff that is in there looks like mud. I don't have anything close to the specs here in the shop, so I'll have to go searching next week for some grease for reassembly.

Thanks in advance.

80/90 in Planetary ; no. 1 lithium base in axles... some have used no.2 moly base in axles. Both should work fine.

5lbs tub of wheel bearing grease in each side for the axle shafts. I just did out 2150 last year.

Thanks guys for the info. I was able to get some grade 1 lithium grease in town. Now to pump all that grease in, going to take a bit.

Thanks again for the help.
