Silicone grease for UCA and Shackles

What is the best Silicone grease to use for my Camburg UCA and Defined Shackles. I have searched and searched, but these recommend Silicone lube and the only Silicone lube I can find is in a can for like rubbing on not pushing through a Zerks fitting. Should I just buy the 3M stuff in a can and dump it n the grease gun?

Thanks.

you can use superlube on all pivots, been racing on it for years. i just dont recommend it for drivelines.

you can use whatever you want but just dont use a petroleum based grease on delron bushings
