I lubricate those splines too.  I believe that my Bentley manual says
to put MoS2 powder (which I have never found) on them.  I use MoS2
grease.  The axle nut is a lock nut and is approx 162 ft-lb torque.
There will be no play and it is not going anywhere.  Don't grease the
nut.  BTW, you cannot reuse the axle lock nut even with Locktight.  It
will come loose, I know.
