    I just soak my bearings in 5w20 oil for an hour or so before installation and then coat lightly in moly diff lube. Another great tool which i will be picking up is the rpm bearing blaster.

    Got any photos of the kent dry lube, PB blaster dry lube works well, I am currently using some dry lube I got from Walmart in the bike dept. it's on a bottle that you just put drops on. Seems to be working okay, keeps the dirt of most parts. The PB blaster dry lube I spray my whole truck down with it, everywhere, doesn't seem to hurt anything, leaves a white powder residue on the chassis, but it repels dirt and water great. I use an air compressor and spray my truck off every time I'm done using it. I normally spray the truck down every fews runs.

    For bearings I like to use Acer SIN. But its pricey. I have not tried it but Marvel Mystery Oil is supposed to be a really good bearing oil.

    Wheel bearings get packed with Mobil 1 wheel and bearing grease.
    Trans bearings get T-9 Boeshield.
