Half Shafts

I have changed the Half Shafts and just the Half Shaft, nothing else. Of course all the rubber boot and seals, bearings in the differential etc. My car is a -94 LX with V8 and Aut.

The question I have is: how much new grease should I use in each end?

In the cv joints? Usually the boot kit comes with a pack of the correct grease.

There was grease added, no problem. What I have done is that I have taken it all apart, which means that I have the half shaft separately and cleaned out both ends totally. Why? Two reasons.
No1. There has been a leakage of dirt water into the end, which sit at the wheel end. I did not want to have grease mixed with dirt. It is abrasive and will sooner or later destroy the complete end.
No2. I had new half shafts made in the same material as what they use in a Racing car. Reason? Fun and my company manufacture that type of material.
