  In a "have to guarantee it" situation REPLACE THE JOINT!  In a "use it 
yourself situation"  it depends on cash flow.  If it's affordable then 
it.  If not then get some GOOD grease, clean it thoroughly and repack it.
IIRC my Rabbit's joints were less than perfect.  I bought a tube or two of 
Amsoil's #1 or #2 grease and repacked all 4 when I did my major overhaul.  
The orchard bought some HT Moly grease after that.  It's good but doesn't 
have that "still slippery on the fingers even after a couple washings" effect 

that the Amsoil did.  I've repacked several joints with the "kit" grease 
since but for my "keepers" I'll likely pick up more of the Amsoil.
