    Do the full-floater axle bearings get packed w/ grease(these are the hub/wheel bearings), or are they simply lubed by the axle grease?
    Thanks,

    they get lubed by the oil in the housing.
    some people say pack them normaly, some say pack them light, some say dont pack them. what do i say you ask, i say pack them normaly. but if you are using synthetic gear oil use synthetic grease of the same brand but the proper wheel bearing rating.
