Now I'm getting stupid anal...

How hot do the front hubs get on a na 944 in normal spirited driving? The reason you ask? I have some fantastic bearing grease that we purchased for an ultra precision surface grinder and had to order it directly from Austria. This stuff is like gold. Ultra refined.

It is rated at:
Temerature range -30c to 130c (-22 - 266 F)
Speed factors to 1.2 million nDm.

We do not need it for work anymore and I thought it would make an ultra precision wheel bearing grease.

Save it for the surface grinder that has high rpms and low load.

Your front and rear bearings turn at half the speed of the wheel but have high loading. Moly grease has always been my choice and most dealerships.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?
