Yes, does EZ-hub are a one shot deal. In the dexter manual, they state that you should only use them we brand new seal and recommended grease. I suspect these seal need to glue to the hub and of good quality. I would not recommend greasing them on a routine basis as you do not know if grease is going into the hub.
A mechanic once told me we listen to the cracking sound. If he it cracking, it means the grease is going pass the seal. Personally, I don't like the EZ-hubs.
I suspect you will need new hubs and brake pads.
