    Got tired of the site for a while so I was off it and laying low.

    I want to actually do stuff with other members again like trail runs and camping.. but we have a lack of leadership it seems in the SD area for that stuff.

    Lets get a thread started on it. :)

    Oh, well in that case give me a captain's hat....land-ho...:p




    I'd get the OEM shit Gabe if I was you, It's different for sure, not really grease, well let me take that back, it's a type of grease, maybe synthetic but it feels alot different than standard petroleum base lube, pretty sure you can get just that at stealership

    Get a molly based High pressure grease, Redline makes a very good CV specific grease but pricey.

    I have found different results, on my old buggy the cheaper grease turned into liquid at high heat and broke down really fast, I even boiled it before! And this led to a complete CV failure where the cage actually blew apart.
    The best stuff you can find can be bought at Caterpillar Equipment shops, there is one in Esco near Mission and Nordahl.

    Comes in a tube for a grease gun, its called Desert Gold, it was about $25 per tube, best stuff you can get, probably way overkill for a Toyota, but I have tested this stuff in my buggy and it was 100x better than anything else I have ever used.

    Just my .02

    Desert Gold is very good, if you can find it, I have used it before, the redline CV2 is the same formula
