    I repack my bearings with marine grade grease, but run my CVD's dry.

    I'm in the middle of a tear down and have been considering this subject. I was thinking about dry lube in the CVDs and removing the inner seal from each wheel bearing and packing them with grease plus extra grease in between.

    Remove both bearing side covers. If the bearing is used clean it with kerosene (if new you're good), and repack both sides of the bearing with grease or high speed bearing lube. Put the covers back on, and you're good to go.

    New bearing which comes with hardly any grease.



    Used bearing after cleaning.



    Suggested lubricants.



    Repacked bearing with marine grade grease.



    Bearing repacked, reassembled, and ready for use.
