    Any general purpose auto/bike grease is fine for hubs. If you use a heavy/thick grease like marine grease, don't put a ton into the drive side bearings (if you have a Shimano freehub) since the grease can work up into the freewheel mechanism and cause it to hang.
    Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(
