A premium moly disulfide grease will also work just fine.
And use the Marlin inner axle seals!

^ I agree with this guy, no leaks at all since using all marlin seals.

Use a good quality moly grease. Polish were the axel seals seat on your axle. Makes the new seal last longer. I find the marlin ones are harder and more abrasive and wear 2 grooves into the axle after about 80000kms.
If your using oem style seals dont push them in all the way leave them about 0.050" out of the original location to clear and grooves from the old seal.

It's not a toyota unless the birfs are leaking. Plus when they stop leaking you know to add oil.

And BTW... They are Birfields, there is nothing to do with a bird in there.
