At TOTAL CHAOS, we recommend super lube but a few installation shops have reported success with red bearing grease.

Super Lube everytime!
 
Shit! How often should we be putting grease in there?

Oh, and I’ve been spraying WD-40 PTFE dirt and dust dry lube on the uniball joint. Is that good or bad?

That's fine but the bushing on uca should get lubed every so often I give everything a check over every 2000km(1200miles)

When you check it over, what are you looking for? I’ve got close to 9k miles on mine and haven’t splooged any grease in there yet. My assumption is if they start to make noise, then they should be greased?

If you start hearing squeaking noise then they need grease for shure , I just do a quick run around my truck I work in a shop have the tools , end of a day bring it in take 10 mins check tire preassure (one tire is always behind the rest) check torque on my wheels , blow the uniball out a quick squirt of pfte lube maybe grease the uca joint, blow off the guck and grime from my threads on the coilover(try and keep it clean so it can adjust easy), check my rear diff as I did have the leaking diff issue (had them warranty they changed gasket or somthing) but I keep a regular eye on it , and a quick check of my ubolts , possible a tire rotation every so often

It really varies between applications. Sometimes, customers grease ever 5k miles when changing their oil. Other times, we have customers go 25-30k miles between greasing. It depends how hard you're running the truck and how often you're in the dirt
