Rear axle wheel bearings

Hey guys had to swap out the parking brake so the hubs and bearings all had to come out i was just wondering if packing them with bearing grease would be a problem it appears that they are lubed by the dif fluid and i packed them with grease and put everything back together before sparing it a second thought but I'd like to know if it all needs to come apart again before i replace the rear dif fluid or if i can just leave the grease on there

What kind of grease? i.e. brand and temp rating as well as your best description of the texture. If it doesn't have any graphite in it you are probably fine. My best recommendation is for you to compare your grease ingredients to that of engine assembly lube. If they are close don't worry about it.
