    Looking for grease for my spindles....been told high temp grease...what is the drop point to be considered high temp?

    Should there be a minimum drop point spec that I use for spindles?

    I'm sure you won't go wrong with the synthetic grease.
    I've been "suspicious" of drop points since I saw a "test" 40+ years ago.
    I was a teenager working at a gas station and the boss took a dab or "Hi Temp" wheel bearing grease and a dab of chassis lube on the end of a screw driver and lit them. The WB grease dripped and the chassis grease didn't.
    Maybe the WB grease burned a lot hotter or??? It was a bit interesting however.

    No, but if I think about it, I will check it.
