btw thanks Canadian Trailblazer!
No, I never thought of doing that, but I wheeled the pee out of my 10 bolts (didnt really care), I went through mud and water all the time, and never had to repack the bearings. When I took it apart to do the D60 swap, I did not see the slightest damage from "neglect". I would just use a good synthetic grase and not worry about it.
If you have manual locking hubs alot of grease is bad for them. It can make them not function correctly. If you have driveslugs like some Jeeps do then it wont be a problem.
My concern is that if you are greasing because you have been in water, Where is the water going? Without disassembly you can't get rid of the problem that you are trying to solve. Plus your building allot of pressure around the hubs with all that grease which will cause them to act up as Hossbaby50 said.
That and the whole problem of removing and installing the grease fitting every time you take the wheels off.
Think the guy said remove the hub and pump grease until clean flows out.
I'd like it a lot better if the new grease could actually make it to the bearings. Kind of like those bearing buddies for boat trailers.
