Which stuff would you guys use out of these:
Amsoil Racing 2000
Red Line CV-2
Mobil Delvac Extreme
Lubro Moly CV grease with moly
Good ol' Sta-Lube CV joint grease

I'm looking for something better than OEM.

I cant make an informed decision of the choices you gave.Having used only the Liqui Moly version which work well enough i guess,its still in the car.

My question is why are you looking for something better than OEM?
Unless the boots get torn these joints seem to be pretty well lubed from the factory.
We see examples every day with over 100K on them with no issues.

Granted the OEM's don't always use the best designs or even the best parts in some areas but in general the fluids and lubricants seem to hold up pretty well.

The grease has broken down to a thick liquid. Otherwise, the joints are in great shape.

Some cars had very weak halfshafts, a better grease might work as a band-aid to extend the life of the halfshafts.

1980s cars often had the biggest problems with halfshafts.

I have had really good luck with the Red Line CV-2 grease in this application.

Use only a grease labeled for the CV joints. This is very tough duty for a grease.

The CV joint boot kits I've bought have included special CV joint grease. You aren't re-using old boots, are you? Get new boots.
