Amsoil site says it is compatable with many greases but does not name them. It only says that it is best to clean the part of all the old grease before using Amsoil grease.

Since my ball joints and tie rods have been greased with lithium grease are not really cleanable can I mix Amsoil grease with Lithium?

Amsoil Synthetic Multi is calcium sulfonate complex in a synthetic fluid, probably PAO.

I wouldn't determine compatibility based on thickener only. Most grease experts say the generic charts are misleading and often don't agree with each other.

For the most part the only grease that isn’t compatible with anything else is polyurea based ones. Calcium and lithium can mix and I think some of the aluminum complex ones can mix with lithium also.
