Greasy nipples!


Evening all!
I'm just in the middle of replacing all my bushes and joints on my 1973
Can anyone recommend what grease they use in theirs?
Moog just state heavy duty lithium or synthetic?
I've used valvoline oil in the past and got on well with their products...
Would appreciate opinions please before I go and buy some😃
Cheers
Ian

Re: Greasy nipples!


A "standard" LM type grease is perfect.

I've used Castrol LM, Lithium based grease for years. Any grease that's got an NLGI no of 2 is OK.

NLGI 2 greases conform to the GM spec for chassis grease.
