That redline your using is probably a lot better then what the dealer uses and recommends. I don't think you should have a problem if you keep using it. It should say what specs. it meets, just check what the factory says to use and see if the redline meets those specs. I think the factory manual says to use a lithium base NLGI 2 grease.

The important thing is not to mix greases of different bases. Some different bases can be mixed to differing extents, but others are incompatible. The base (eg lithium) is the type of wax used to make the grease not be a liquid. Probably easiest way is to just not switch greases around but always stick with the same. Two automotive types that can be mixed (but not preferred) are lithium and lithium-soap. Two that can't be mixed are lithium and aluminum high temperature.
