Recommended Trailer Wheel Bearing Grease for Dexter Axles

Question:

I want the grease I apply to my new Dexter Axle wheel bearings to be compatible with the factory applied grease. What type grease is used in the OE assemblies so I can be sure what to buy for periodical greasing! I have a 2011 Horton 6x10 with Dexter 3,500 lb brake axles and E-Z-lube axles! I also want to buy a spare brake hub assembly but my manual does not list what Dia. brake hub I have! Your assistance is greatly appreciated on these items.

Expert Reply:

Usually when you replace parts that get lubricated, you clean all of the existing grease first before adding any new grease, just in case there is a compatibility issue. Since you are using Dexter axles and replacing components with Dexter parts, the grease will be compatible.

For wheel bearing grease, use LubriMatic Disc/Drum Brake and Wheel Bearing Grease, # L11465, or # L11380. This is a LUB-L/M type polyurea-based grease that is compatible with most grease formulas. The only grease formulas it is not recommended with are Barium Complex and Non-soap clay.

For the hub assembly, I would need the bearing numbers stamped into the inner and outer bearings. With those numbers and the wheel bolt pattern, I should be able to find the correct part.
