Kevin, I was getting ready to post about your comment regarding never seize on the taper -- but I see BigKev already did.

Agree fully with BigKev.....no lubricant at all, just clean everything really well. Studebaker warned on these tapered axle shafts and hubs that using a lubricant could leak to swelling and cracking the hub.

Also, you mentioned 'not messing up the axle endplay' -- so you did check and verify the end play is correct? If not, now is the time to do it while the brakes are apart.
