Can Moly grease be mixed with grease in MOOG ball joints?

I've installed my new steering linkage and suspension using Moog ball joints, tie rod ends and idler arm. They have no plastic in them. I have a good Schaeffer grease (#274 Moly EP Synthetic Plus Grease.) The grease in the moog parts is blue, I dont know what type. Can I pump the moly synthetic into my moog parts?

I don't see why you couldn't mix those greases. It's not like that joint is going to see high speed friction or heat stress that would make differing greases start separating, waxing up, etc.
