Lucas X-tra Heavy Duty grease even works for CV joints.
I use it on everything that gets greased.

Available ~everywhere.

Not a fan of some other Lucas products (oil additive just makes foam) , but I like that grease.
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...

I chose Valvoline SynPower Full Synthetic Multi-Purpose Grease (16 oz.) Part No. VV986 because I saw it on Bob Is the Oil Guy: http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ub ... 9&page=all

NLGI No. 2 thickness
NLGI GC-LB for both chassis and bearing lubrication
Lithium complex EP (extreme-pressure) MP (multipurpose) grease for most optimal properties
High-temperature grease
Fully synthetic Group III base oil for extreme working temperature range from -40 to 400 F
Contains molybdenum disulphide, which is crucial to prevent scoring of metal surfaces
Contains ZDDP, which is crucial to protect against oxidation of the base oil and metal surfaces
Can be used in all automotive applications for all makes, including disc-wheel bearings and CV joints and high-temperature applications
