I can't imagine that it is that critical. A good
wheel bearing grease should do the trick. I would not recommend
moly grease because it contaminates the oil requiring a change out
in short order. If you are overhauling the motor, then this is moot
as you will be changing the break-in oil in 500 miles anyway.
If you are merely replacing the rear seal, then wheel bearing
grease will do the trick and you can change the oil at the regular
I use Valvoline, but there are lots of good products out there.
