I use the same as I use on the vehicles that I drive that have greasable bearings. Heave duty for disc brakes.
I don't add to. I remove the bearings, clean then grease them with new seals, examine the brakes and adjust as needed. Then you know all is good and working.

Technically you should use the grease that is specified and approved by your axle manufacturer. The approved list is different for LCI and Dexter.

In the end be sure to use a high quality grease. Any Lithium Complex NLGI 2 should be fine. Just clean out all the old grease before adding the new if you do not know what the old grease is. Mixing different types of grease is not a good practice as they can effect each other.

Lucas Red N Tacky gets a lot of recommendations. Mystic JT6 is another.

Mystic JT6.
Most of the axle manufacturers have approved grease on their web sites.
