That's funny, I just picked some it up today and that's what got me thinking about what others use. I have used Lucas for years and didn't have a problem with it other than I wanted to try something new

CHEAP CHEAP CHEAPER and CHEAPEST, it's all the same and wears out in two days anyway. I ve wasted money on fancy grease before and it did the exact thing the cheap stuff. WORE in and out in two days. Not worth it. The cheap stuff in pricey enough at 3-4 bucks a tube. They say "keep your stuff greased because grease is cheap" for a reason. Let's keep it that way

I just buy the cheapest available as well when I'm out. I've never seen anything fail from being greased by one brand over another.......but no grease sure will cause problems lol
