    Default DS Chassis Grease type

    Since most of us now have to resort to our own servicing, what is the better chassis grease that the experts recommend?

    Supercheap auto recommends a Moly Complex EP2 grease. Is that correct, or any Castrol cartridge will do?

    Moly ..... Black molybdenum ....as a chassis grease I think it best, but my local trailer and caravan man doesn't approve for wheel bearings. His claim is because of the black he can't see any deposits in the grease that would indicate degrading of the bearing surfaces.

    I reckon standard multi purpose Castrol should do.

    Nulon Teflon [PTFE] grease works extremely well & is suitable for wheel bearings. I used it very successfully years ago in the inner driveshaft triax joints on my GS after one seized on a trip. Added a little gear oil to liquify it so it moved around in the joint. It's not as messy & staining as the black molly but best not to mix them.
    I have used the Nulon gearbox additive successfully in all my manual gearboxes too for over forty years.

    Chassis grease is typically specified for high contact pressure lubrication.
    Extreme pressure additives (ep) are added to provide this.
    Molybdenum disulphide is a common and effective ep additive.
    It's the black stuff.
