when replacing the cv, should I be concerned with any fluid or lube?
My Ford Shop Manual doesn't mention any lubrication when installing.
My Haynes manual said to coat the differential seal lips with multipurpose grease.
Another poster, http://www.therangerstation.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12208 mentions ‘spread a 1/8 bead' of high-temp grease on the 'seal lips' on the excluder seal.
I plan to do both, can't see how it could hurt anything, but I'll use synthetic grease because of the rubber/plastic.
