Hey MustangKilla,

You can do that. Lots of grease is hard to clean, so you have to supplement that with brake clean and paper towels. You wipe everything clean until everything is shiny new metal. Then you can use your hands to pack redline into the bearing. I probably use more than necessary, because I'm constantly having to wipe everything clean from the excess being squeezed out (as I assemble the bearing, not as I install it). It's pretty obvious and self explanatory once you have the bearing in your hands.

Subaru OE grease may be a packing grease and should be replaced before installation...
