Default CV Joints Grease

Hey Guys I've recently had my front left outer CV boot split so I'm looking at replacing all 4 boots because I figure they're probably about all shot.

I've got the repco CV boot kit which comes with grease, however I have no idea what grease it is and the quality of it. Is this grease good to use or should I opt for something else? I had my eye on the Penrite CV Joint Grease tubes however I'm a bit put off by the price. Are there many other decent quality options?

Thanks,
Ryan

No idea on the CV kits but I have 2 Repco branded bottles of oil - one is auto tranny fluid and the other is power steering fluid. Both say on the back “Blended for Repco by Penrite Australia” etc. so it’s possible the CV kit uses decent quality grease.

Interesting, I always assumed Repco stuff was as cheap as possible but I'm more inclined to use it if that's the case. I'm also curious that they give an 80g sachet in the kit however the penrite tube is 100g and other sources say use as much as it will take

It could also be terrible quality non Penrite stuff LOL. If the car is a keeper and in good shape and if the grease supplied is of unknown quality maybe the safe bet is buying some branded stuff.

That's what I was thinking and why I was looking at the penrite stuff but for 32 bucks a side it seems a bit dear.

So for future reference I've talked to a couple of shops and been recommended to get the castrol Spheerol LMM grease which is used for CVs and comes in a 500g tub for $18 and I can't seem to see much difference between the two so I'm going to go with that one.
