    I am installing my 4" lift on Sat. What lube should I use on the new poly bushings on the leaf springs????

    Also, does NAPA sell bushings for the OEM rear shackle????

    Thanks,

    I use anti-seize compound, seems to hold up pretty good for me. No squeeks for years, and I don't have to re lube /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Not sure on the NAPA thing, but I doubt it. ("We could order it for ya") /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I use the lube they give me, or if they don't come with any or is not enough I have used anti-sieze and so far no squeaks.
