Default Greasing the fittings

Is there any special type of grease you all use for the fittings under the car?

I use Mystik JT-6 High Temp grease for everything that gets greased.

At Tom's suggestion, I have been using the same thing now for the past 3 years. Works great.

Where do you buy the grease? and do you have any idea what the cost is for it?
I can't seem to find it locally.

I buy it at Fleet-Farm for about $3 a tube. I would think any good farm store or auto parts store would sell it. Maybe even Walmart?

Walmart does have it and it's Tom's fault that I use it.

its important that the greases you use are compatible. The most common available and least expensive are lithium based. Mystic is one of them. I like the red version and find them at O'Reilly's.

The blue water proof grease is Aluminum Complex, and is not compatible with Lithium Complex greases. I have seen wheel bearings which were greased with both, and the grease becomes hardened and dry.

It states on the back of the tube or can which complex the product is

Bought two tubes of Mystik JT-6 High Temp grease today at Mills Fleet farm. It was $2.99 a tube.

Others have it for a higher price.

I get it at Shucks / O'riley's. Napa here doesn't carry it. Haven't tried Autozone.
