rubber bushings get attacked by most petroleum based grease check material specification sheets of petroleum based grease and rubber compounds... SOME rubber can handle it, but lithium is the **** when it comes to bushings. Unfortunately it gets washed away when used UNDER the car, but as long as it stays in the bushing, it's good.

There is a reason why things get recommended by major manufacturers... they have multi-billion dollar testing/engineering budgets, I'd say go with what they say If they say lithium, so be it. Also, I think their engineers have taken a materials course or two.

over time the bushing wears into the grease, turning it a grayish color. lithium grease brand new is white. other possibility is that graphite is mixed into the lithium grease for added protection, which is unlikely.

white lithium, high water and heat resistence, excellent adhesion properties and a good helping of graphite....
i was gonna use moly cuz it's even finer than the graphite and is twice as slick but people here seem to have a H-O for graphite so....
:cry: what about me
