Poly bushings

I need to find out if there is a specific grease for use on pollyurethane bushings.
I'm working on my 4runner with allpro offroad greasable leaf spring bushings.

dude at baxters tried to sell me a little tub of energy suspension crap for $16
I want a tube of it to put in my grease gun
Thanks for the help

I just use what is in the grease gun, usually either marine grease or green grease. Both seem to hold up very well for a long time. With poly bushings make sure and grease them well, if they run out they squeak like crazy.

Look towards marine greases, you want something that is going to resist getting washed out over time so you don't need to regrease as often.

I use silicone grease. I believe its Dow/Corning #111. Lithium grease is also known for its water repellent qualities. Most any grease is probably going to be ok. Periodic cleaning and relubrication makes the grade or type of grease less of an important factor.
