    Tri-Flow® Superior Dry Lubricant: $5.89
    Tri-Flow® Superior Dry Lubricant is an elite formula created for dry and dusty conditions. The 2oz drip bottle applicator allows for deep penetration in hard to reach moving parts. Featuring paraffin wax and high-grade petroleum oil to allow the lube to go on wet, but then set up in a dry, 'wax-like' film so it will not attract or absorb grit and grime. Perfect for dry, dirty, dusty conditions, while still providing adequate wet weather performance. Holds up to extreme pressures and resists water wash-off. Provides incredible efficiency without attracting an excessive amount of contaminants. Great for Uni-Ball bearings.

    Personally if I had uniballs I'd be using dry moly spray lube. Bushings I'd probably go with valvoline full syn grease, I'd have to check and see if those bushings would be compatible though.

    If that looks dirty-You shouldn't look at my truck....

    Mobil1 in the grease tube works great with my grease gun. That is what the zero fittings are for...or if thy are off the truck you can take them apart to refill them if you want...

    The normal Mobil1 synth grease should do. Or any other reputable brand you like.

    And Max-I think the lube you use and the stuff I use are really pretty similar. That Teflon type doesn't attract/hold dirt like a grease or WD40 type lube. And I've had great luck with that same lube on motorcycle chains, appliances, and yard tools for years...
