Cv joint grease

I Purchased boot replacement kit for my 2001 xplorer. The manual calls for 60g if completly cleaning the joint. Which this is my plan. 30g if just replacing the boot. Ok dumb question. The g stands for grams? The package does not say. Weighing it its 64.76 grams which leads me to believe this is what the g stands for in the manual. But unsure did want to short change the joints on grease if the package was only for replacing the boot
Thanks if anyone helps out
Ron

Yep, g = grams. It don't have to be precise. Just cut the corner off the grease pack, squeeze the joint full, put the band on and call it a day.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean gallon
