    I am in the process of installing ORD greaseable bushings in my leaf springs. Which grease can you use? I normally use the red high temp stuff. But someone told me it will ruin the bushings. Any info is appreciated

    Contact the manufacturer. They can tell you the best product to use.

    High temp grease has nothing to do with the spring bushings as they don't get hot or anything.

    The grease I would use if I were you is marine grease. It repels water and keeps the bushings lubed longer and better than regular grease does.

    The key word here is water, not heat. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I used the same grease that I use on the steering components. Just regular lube in a tube.

    I use a blue, marine grease available at Auto Zone. It seems to work pretty damn well.
