Default CV joint grease?

Can I use moly grease in a CV joint that has ball bearings inside? Or do I need to use specific CV grease. I have moly already is all.

Iíve always used Molybond with good results. In fact there is a VW Golf still running around with joints I did 34 years ago with Molybond, no idea why itís been that long lived but itís a pretty good indicator that it works.

All good, I spoke to a Penrite rep and he said what I have is safe on CV joints.

For recent ones I've used the proper CV nasty sticky stuff, however in the past ive used high temp bearing grease without a problem and lasted years.

Some CV joints require a heavy oil.
EP (molly containing) grease is not recommended. MP or special grease is what is needed.
Depends what the application is.
