I was wondering if I could basically use any grease to rebuild my Bmx. I was thinking of picking some high temp grease up in Autozone

For bearings, an NLGI #2 bearing grease. For bolts, copper anti-seize.

So I would have to buy special grease to install my bottom bracket and to relive my freecoaster?

It's the most common kind of grease. NLGI is a measure of the thickness of the grease. Just don't use a grease that's too thick or thin: too thick and you add a lot of resistance in the bearings; too thin and it just gets pushed out to the side and ends up doing nothing at all. Most good grease will have an NLGI rating on the container.

Also, make sure you get a bearing grease. Anti-seize is not a bearing grease.

I use high temp bearing grease on everything. Love the stuff. It will do you well.

Great for slathering freecoaster internals.

Its not good for cassette pawls though.

I personally wouldnt use it on the chain but It would work. I would rather leave the chain dry but if you dont live in a dusty area, ride dirt jumps or mind ruining your pants it would do the job.

I use oil on the chain and cassette pawls. Regular motor oil or gear oil works fine, wipe off excess. I have used gun oil with good results as well. Grease on everything else.
