Is it recommended to grease up the new axle shafts when I install them into the axle? And if so what kind of grease? Thanks

I typically go the extra mile & use high quality marine grease on the splines and axle seal areas.

I've used some experimental grease that Currie Enterprises asked me to try out & it worked well too.

When you build axles as a profession - you tend to go the extra mile if your reputation is on the line.

Sounds good thanks, so grease on the shaft itself is not recommended

Just grease up the splines and seals? Not the shaft themselves? And would regular bearing grease work? Thanks just don't wanna mess it up!
