I'm about to install a bunch of new front end parts, Moog brand, on my car, not a truck, that have zerk grease fittings. So I bought a tube of Super Tech Moly-Lithium grease. ( Extreme Pressure Grease )

Currently I have only Super Tech 'General Purpose' grease in my grease gun, which I relised was the wrong spec for automotive ball-joints, chassis points, bushings, etc...

Product Specs:
Base Type: Lithium 12 Hydroxy Stearate
Color: dark grey
N.I.G.I.: Grade 2
Water Resistance: Excellent
Drop Point: 350 Deg. F Minimum
Timken OK Load: 45 lbs.


Any opinions on this product? thanks.

I've only used this grease on my tools for corrosion protection - it works for that so far, but then so would any.

I think your fine for chassis application. It would be nice to see the service rating though for TEMP - I couldn't find it anywhere on the web for that model.

I am pretty sure it is Sta=lube & not Mystik...besides, wal-mart sells the name-brand Mystik grease but none w/ moly \:\(

I need to lube up my car door hinges, since they all started creaking a week or so ago... tried a PTFE spray grease which stopped the creaking for about 2 days only. I have a tube of the Super Tech moly grease, I assume it will do nicely. Any thoughts?

(also, is there a way to temporarily thin this grease out? It's very thick and I'm not sure it can reach inside the hinge if not thinned a bit)

You can mix it with some solvent to thin it.

I use the SuperTech Moly-Lithium grease on everything... even though it doesn't taste so good on my toast in the morning.

It'll perform well for what you're going to use it to do. I use it on the front end of my pickup... which is used to build houses and is driven across construction sites.

What's the deal with the lithium hydroxy thickener as opposed to lithium complex? Any compatibility issues?

Here is a grease compatibility chart: LINKY LINK

You should still flush out any old grease before adding a different type - even compatible ones.
