I've seen several people suggest applying white lithium grease when installing poly bushings. I went to Auto Zone today to pick up some, but all they had was white lithium in a spray can, similar to WD40. I was under the impression that the grease being suggested for bushings was thicker than this. The friendly folks at AutoZone said that the spray can was all they carried. Is this what I should use?

NAPA carries it in a tube about 5 inches long. It's blue, with white lettering. The store I frequent has them on the counter.

I'd go for the tube also unless the auto zone spray spits it out like cheese wiz

Anyone know what's so special about lithium? I'd like learn something here.

"Lubriplate" grease is white, has low viscosity, comes in a tube and is readily available. Been using it for years

You might consider using CV joint lube. i t has a high resistance to washing out. Started using it on poly bushings in my old truck.
