    im in the GM ASEP program and i just recently installed ORD's greasable poly bushings and my instructor told me that with poly bushings you need to use a speacial grease designed for polyurethane and that reg grease will eat them up. also said that id prolly have to get it from a race shop. is this true? ORD's instructions say to use grease or antiseize

    I use the same wheel bearing grease I had in my greasegun that I use on everything else:D. Dont squeek and they are not being eaten away.

    I used the black Moly grease on all my spring eye bushings and bolts. I used a graphite lube on the poly body mounts. I have no squeaks and nothing has broken down...
