What type of grease should I use for poly leaf spring bushings?
(IMO) If you don't have greaseable bolts, I'd recommend that you use the silicone dielectric grease. It won't break-down the ploy.
I use marine grease will that break down the poly? Sorry for the hi jack on your thread SS66.
Poly is supposed to be resistant to oil, I would *think* petroleum based grease of any kind would therefore be ok...curious to hear otherwise though!
I would think that if most grese is labled wheelbering and chasis lube then it should be alright. I would think that grese would rot rubber before poly but I could be wrong.

I have to agree with Storm Tropper, thats what i use- but im partial to synthetics
Under normal conditions regular grease would be fine but if you flex your truck out like I do, after time, the reg. grease will soften the bushings and I have found that they crack so I just use the best. It's up to you and opinions will very from everyone.
