Not that it is the best idea but normally I just set the caliper on the rod between the two tierods. There is no violent hammering or such involved in taking the hub off so I've never had a problem with this. I use Redline Synthetic CV-2 grease, it has a dropping point of 900+*F. One of my bearings on one of the 300Ds had the mercedes green stuff in it but it seemed a little watery, other than that it seemed like great stuff.

Although Red Line CV-2 is compatible with small amounts of many petroleum-based greases, it is always good lubrication practice to thoroughly clean out the old grease to eliminate abrasive particles and to minimize the possibility of grease incompatibility.
