polyurethane grease

i know in the past i have bought poly bushings and they always had a lil packet of clearish white grease. and a big warning that said DO NOT USE NORMAL GREASE ON POLYURETHANE as it my degrade the material.

well no problem.. all i ever needed was the lil tube they provided to lube things up before install.

well no i see they are making greasable bushings... with lil grease fittings and all. AND POLY BUSHINGS

how is one to grease a poly bushing if you cant use petroleum based grease. i mean it would be aweful hard to squeeze those lil tubes thru a grease fitting. and i have never seen poly grease any bigger than those tubes.

what is the deal?

i bought some real nice poly bushings that are greasable, but need to know how to grease them. (they are from energy suspension) same people who made my other bushings i wasnt allowed to use grease on excpet their fancy clearwhite stuff.

Re: polyurethane grease

Use 3m silicone paste or any good brand of synthetic grease!
Petrolium based product will slowly but surley turn the poly bushings into hard cottagecheese looking junk!

Re: polyurethane grease

I've posted this many times... Look for Loctite Superlube. This is PTFE based grease and this is what I used for my poly bushings after I ran out of the PTFE based grease supplied with the bushings.

Lookie here as well for an earlier post. And Here
