In the past, the moly was not small enough in the formulas and it could cause the roller bearing to seize on the race for just a moment. Then over time, the roller would get a flat spot and take out the race.
Does this extend to ujoints as well? I'd love to just be able to buy just molly grease and not worry about running out of one or the other.
