Any "all purpose" chassis grease.
Frequent greasing is far more important than the type/brand of grease used.

I use Amsoil heavy duty equipment grease. My 99 4500 crew cab dually 4x4 had 160,000 miles and the front end was still tight like mel s said do it frequently.

There are many excellent greases for chassis lubrication. Its considered bad form to mix grease types especially in high pressure wheel bearing applications. Chassis lube points aren't as big of an issue but using similar grease types are still recommended.


Depending on the chassis age and maintenance taken by others it can often be difficult to determine the existing lube type. If it's new the chassis manual will state the proper lube. If it's older its possible others have used something different. so YMMV.

Generally speaking chassis lube uses conventional grease's such as wheel bearing grease. Molly based lubes are usually non transparent and pasty while conventional dyno lube is clearish.

Been a number of years but I used to work for a trucking company that ran team drivers and each unit averaged 220K per year. I know at that time they used Mystic which I believe you can find in any tractor supply or such. I've been out of that game for a while. I need to start looking into it as well so I can start doing some of my own lube jobs.

If you have your chassis manual, it will tell you in there.

Here is a link to what I use on my front loader cat and my mh, I have used several of their products for the past 25 years.

Slightly expensive, but then quality products are expensive.

related but not exactly to your question - if you are close to speedco, they do chassis lube for $30. you can watch them doing it.
