variational inequality arises in elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication point contact problem. A limiter based stable hybrid line splittings are introduced on hierarchical multi-level grid. These hybrid splittings are designed by use of diffusive coefficient and mesh dependent switching parameter in the computing domain of interest. The spectrum of illustrated splittings is derived with the help of well known local Fourier analysis (LFA). Numerical tests validate the performance of scheme and its competitiveness to the previous existing schemes. Advantages of proposed splittings are observed in the sense that it reduces computational complexity (up to (O(nlogn)) and solve high order discretization directly (no defect-correction tool require) without perturbing the robustness of the solution procedure (i.e. it works well for large range of load parameters).
