Nah mate they should be pre-greased. I just clean the shaft up with a bit of sand paper and hit it with a bit of lube spray makes it alot easier to put the new hub on.

The bearings will most likely need to be packed though. None of the ones that I've seen in or out of work are packed.

What do you mean by packed? Packed with grease? All the ones I have had were.

no need to pack ba bearing its a sealed unit.

if however you live in a wet area, perth isn't i'm thinking, you should pull it apart clean it up and apply marine grade grease will double your bearing life
