Grease Recommendations
 
So what do you guys with the knowledge recommend for grease on your universal joints and slip yoke? I invested in Tom Woods shafts and got some information from him about what to use but translating that expertise into a brand/type is beyond me... :banghead:

Anyone have an actual brand/type they use and live by for these areas?

Any name brand extreme pressure (EP) chassis grease will work.

Stock shafts don't have slip yokes and don't require greasing so I would go with whatever the people at Tom Woods are telling you.

I agree...just I was hoping someone could give me more specific feedback on a brand or part number...

Tom emailed me some info but I want to be sure I get the right thing and the technical info he sent me I don't know exactly what to get because I don't understand what the info means...

sorry...grease noob alarm should have been sounded....

Try sending a PM to GreenMachine. I think he has Tom Woods shafts.

I went to the TW website and read his recommendations on grease. Two things stood out. In his words: "Most grease will probably be adequate with the exception of thin motor assembly grease." and "If you run in a lot of water or mud, it may also be good to use a grease that has water resistant characteristics."
My recommendation stands. Go to your local auto parts store and get some chassis/wheel bearing grease. If it says EP on the label that's even better as is grease with molybdenum (moly). Moly helps reduce wear.

I have been using Amsoil Series 2000 grease for a long time and has been great so far.
