Subject: Grease for transmission joints

Hi, I will be removing the drive shafts of my 9k (1997) to replace the CV joint boots/gaiters (not split yet). From memory Castrol MS3 was the best alternative grease for the constant velocity joint. Is it the same grease for the inner joint (tripod to inner shaft joint)? On a similar note, how much play should there be between tripod and inboard shaft (CV flange)? Any none at all? With the car jacked up I can rotate the wheel by 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch and get a nice click sound as the tripod moves from side to side inside the flange. TIA for any advice.
