Wheel Bearing Question

Some say you don't need to add more - I can't see why it would hurt to have it "packed" (one of those "grease pressure packers" would be a lot CLEANER, though)

"Prepare the new tapered roller
bearing for installation. Do not
remove the bearing stay (plastic
piece inside the bearing) at this
Note: Do not disassemble the
bearing. Do not add any grease
to the bearing.

Also the last time I asked a Subaru mechanic he said you don't need to re-pack them but he does anyway.

I purchased the front wheel bearing OEM for my 98 OBW. It looks packed! should I use the factory greese or is there something better out there?
Just picked up my rear bearings and seals from the Subaru Dealer yesterday for my 98 OBW.
The service tech came over and pulled the bearings out of the boxes and stated these don't come packed correctly. They repack all wheel bearings, and I should repack them with any QUALITY (he really stressed QUALITY) wheel bearing grease of my choice.

The first bearing I done I left the grease in it that came with the bearing, lasted about one month. However the hub also had play in it so I dont know how much damage was done from grease and how much was because of the bad hub.
