Most automotive people I know use Copaslip, not expensive.

Another rear axle thread ...
« Reply #11 on: March 02, 2019, 09:51:50 PM »
so I just did a rear and front tire change.  Happy to say my axle came right out, and was very clean.  Of course I do live in SE USA so we have very little salt, sand etc.  anyway I was ready for a bit of a fight, and it all came out easy.  I cleaned the axle, used good marine grade grease on the axle and it is all back together.

That reminds me, I never did take out the rear axle and coat it with the Optimol that I bought. Sounds like a job for next weekend...  :084:
