I have a 88 4d coupe d/r. The boot on the axle is leaking grease from the big side. My plan is too cut the clamp off, slam some wheel bearing grease in there and put a new hose clamp on it. I'm wondering if there is some special kind of grease in there or just regular grease? Thanks

It's an NLGI grade 2 with moly. It's black and slightly stringy. You don't have to buy the "CV" grease. That's a rip off. Just buy a tube of Moly grease - it will likely be grade 2 anyway as that's the most common.

HOWEVER. You should clean all the old grease out completely as they could be incompatible.
