    I have a pair of SKF concentra ceramic axle bearings. Can anyone help with telling me what type of grease to use to service these bearings. Should I just pack it full of grease and replace the seal? They are currently not mounted, and I am planning on completely cleaning them first. Thanks

    Steve, use any high quality grease made for automotive bearings. https://www.pepboys.com/product/details/8110295/00052

    Don’t pack them totally full or grease will leak out of the seal when it gets hot.
