    Hmm looks like Super Lube makes all kinds of grease, not just the silicone based one. The one I've seen at Harbor Freight though is a silicone based grease which is what I thought goes on poly bushings, like the Energy Suspension stuff. Super tacky and sticky/greasy, takes forever to get off your hands or god forbid your nice clothes. Also really hard to pump out of a grease gun lol

    no you're good I think, what threw me off was when you said Lithium grease. I used to use lithium on my leaf spring poly bushings and they clunked real bad until I put the Daystar stuff on instead, which is the silicone based stuff. AFAIK that's what Super Lube is too

    The ones I read some did, some didnt, I just figured mentioning it here wouldnt produce a diatribe of argument lol. I have lithium based grease, but I think Im gonna go no grease.
    and no noise I assume...not like my truck isnt already squeaky af but id like to mitigate the additions

    If there is noise it’s quieter than the other noises.

    Pretty much, but that also leads to more rattling in the cab....

    Let’s everyone know I’m on the way, so they can get out of way if I arrive in pieces.

    Read somewhere that Alcan springs is putting their business up for sale...so I went ahead and placed the order for new leaf springs that I've been going back and forth on for forever now. If they end up selling the company then who knows what might happen with their quality/reputation, wanna make sure I get a set of springs from them before that happens.

    I swear this better be the last set of leaf springs I buy for a long damn time lol

    We talking the white/clear SuperLube stuff? I got some of that and while it works, it seems to melt when it gets hot. Do I have the wrong shit?

    I haven't bought it before, I have the Energy suspension stuff right now but it's also white/clear and extremely sticky and thick. Haven't really checked it out when it gets hot though so I can't say

    I just noticed it got soft and runny in the tub last summer here in Tucson when it was hot. Wasn't very impressed with that. More often than not I use either Valvoline full synthetic wheel bearing grease or some red, full synth grease I found at Vatozone. It actually works good, I use it on the OME shackles in the rear and all the zerk fitting I can find.

    SuperLube I have - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083R1FME/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I was curious too, I always thought lithium is what you want, then I looked it up and TC recommends Grease with ptfe in it. I use a moly lithium grease. It doesnt melt like the super lube lithium does.
