Question 2005 auto locking/locking hub question

I have hubs on my '05 F250 that say "Auto" and "Lock". My right side allowed the axle to turn when it was in "Auto". I took it apart, cleans and lightly greases all of the splines and now, it works but......

How much grease should be used? Should I pack it full?
I have done a search hear and on YouTube for some answered but my hubs don't seem to be covered anywhere.

A little help folks!

Thanks!

Ur post is kinda confusing, can you clarify your question?

The locking hubs dont need a lot of grease, just enough to lightly coat, if thats what ur asking. There are no bearings on the outside so alot of grease does no good

Its likely rotating under the drag of the gear train, not moving under power. Very common.

there is a tiny needle bearing, the shift collar slides back and forth inside this bearing. that is the only part that really needs grease, IIRC. I'd tend to use a thin soft grease, as too thick, or too much when it is cold and it will tend to much the sliding collar sticky. the spines of the shift collar definitely want a soft cold weather compatible grease

On the same hub topic, I noticed that my front hubs are in the lock position instead of auto. Is that OK (Pro and Cons)? or should I put it in auto?
I want to make sure everything is well lubed that needs to be lubed.
Thanks

if you leave them in lock it will wear out the outer locking hubs they are not meant to travel at freeway speeds I have replaced so many at work due to that. Once they are put back in auto they will not unlock thats how you know they are toast.
