Hello Forum,

Still slowly working away at the front end of my CJ3A - ordered all kinds of fun stuff and been staring at the knuckle for about a month, so I had to tear into the steering knuckles today on my day off. They were dirty with what I call "bolt cake" on them...decades of mud smoothed out over the bolt so you can't even tell it's there.

My plan is to clean it all, paint what needs to be freshened up and then put it back together with new seals...etc. but that leads me to my question. What is the proper lubricant to put into the knuckle? It looks like the past person put grease in it, but I was not satisfied with how it looked nor the amount that I found.

So, what goes in there? Grease? Oil? I've read a few articles and remain unsure.
