You can use Molly grease instead of the factory stuff... It is basically the same.

I think Ron is right.

IMO...If you ever drive it in water or the like use oil. You can drain it. As a matter of fact... remove the seals and run oil through the whole case, See the FAQ under wheel bearings.

I believe that when the converted to one-shot, they may have deleted the drain plug from the swivel housings as well.
