What would be THE grease to run in a CV joint? My truck is getting old and I figure one of these days the boots will start to degrade on the front axle. Might just replace the entire assembly but then again a boot is usually a lot cheaper (if I catch it early). I suppose my go-to grease would be valvoline synpower. Readily available, specified for CVs and has performed well in every other application I've used it in so far. Is there something less costly and just as good? Similar price and notably better?

Lower cost and about as good would be shopping for CV axle grease at a local supplier to avoid shipping charges. It's still going to be about $5-8 per 4oz tube or packet. Some boot kits include grease.
