    Good evening gents! Just a quick question here...

    With no deployments on tap, and a semester off from school, I'm looking to catch up on some LOOONG overdue periodic maintenance on my 05 (and will likely flood the forum with questions as my baby has spoiled me over the years). I'm wondering if there is a recommended type/brand of grease I should be loading into the grease gun for tie rod/ball joint/u-joint lubrication. (I saw the other post referencing the methods some of the members use, but don't recall seeing WHAT was used).

    As always, thanks in advance for any insight that assists in keeping my girl road worthy!

    I personally have used SuperTech grease from WallyWorld in the past. It's Lithium based so figure it's a good all-around grease.

    Thanks for sharing the makeup (lithium). I wasn't sure if I should go with lithium or molybdenum (is that even a thing anymore), etc. I haven't kept up with maintenance as I should have over the last 13 years, with my last real "in the weeds" maintenance period being with my old Volkswagen LOL. Trying to get back in the saddle!

    I like Lithium based greases........I like doing maintenance on all my vehicles! Kinda call me OCD when it comes to keeping filters changed, oils changed, zerks greased, tires rotated and aired up.......I like doing it all!

    I hear that! I honestly used to be that way, but just didn't make proper use of limited time and blew it off (I promise I'll make it up to you, old girl! * as I pat her dashboard*)

    Any off the shelf stuff. I use Amsoil because I already purchase oil from them.
