Default xray diffs- what lube/grease to use

ive been looking around for a while to try and find a GOOD ball diff lube or grease. i used tamita ball diff lube for a while and it was okay and then i was told to use tamiya ceramic grease, but its shit and it just doesnt work well( sorry for swearing)

newayz, i was wondering what all u guys out there use in your ball diffs? brands etc.
and also, how do i PROPERLY rebuild the diff in the xray, do i start from scratch, or can i just take off the seals, unscrew it and clean the balls;spray it. and relube?

any help would be appreciated

Tamiya Ball diff grease is the way to go (for me anyway).

Have been using it for a very long time now and never gave me problems. Ceramic grease and meant for other usage. Not inside the ball diff.

you're supposed to get a tube of grease in syringe with the kit.
Use that.DONT use ceramic grease as it's more meant for bushings.It contains grains which polish the surfaces.

Also , if you're anywhere near an AE dealer.Get the Stealth Diff Lube.That's the best i've known.

Stealth diff lube is a high quality silicone lubricant. Ive tried a few fancy magic lubes that were supposed to be great on my TC3 diffs and always clean em out and go back to using the Associated stuff.
