Default 4x4 hub change, what grease for spindle?

Ok, I just choked up the $450 for Timken hub assemblies, and I'm about to put them on. I understand that there is need for a high temp grease. I have in my hand a tube of Shell Albida EP 1 Lithium Complex Grease. Label states its for protection against wear and extreme pressure. Exhibits thermal and oxidation stability. General purpose industrial lubrication including bearings and gears. What do ya'll think, what do ya'll use?

98+ 4x4 bearings are sealed units. Meaning non-greasable, non-serviceable. Grease is already in there ready to go. Unbolt old, bolt on new. Done. I actually JUST got done test driving mine after putting on new bearings. I've got a neat video to show!! lol.

Thanks I guess I was getting the 2wd and 4wd processes mixed together. Yeah, I was p*ssed to find the unit was a sealed assy., but after 150k I guess that's pretty good service.
