Just been watching Wheeler dealers and Ed used copper grease when installing the polybushes, coated bush and sleave to stop squeaking etc. Is this the correct procedure? Installing mine in the next few weeks, handy to know in advance!

I'd have thought it would be best done in white grease / silicone or lithium. Copper would surely just dry out and go crusty, over time?

I used lithium grease on the subframe bushes mainly due to how tight they where. When I trial fitted the rear arms they push in fairly easily so didnt think id need to use anything on them..

I'd go with Lithium or White myself, there's nothing in any of those greases which could eat the poly / rubber or corrode anything metal nearby. I think it's literally a case of not squeaking or seizing...

Some of the poly bush makers supply copper grease & some silicone grease, normally lightly smeared on all contact surfaces to stop squeaking that can occur with a poly bush.

A lot of bushes such as powerflex come with copper based grease.

People do seem to debate whether its an anti-seize or for use as a lubricant though (depending on brand)

I use white as it feels less gritty than the copper on a rubber bush.

Before anyone says its a snide comment I use both forums and favour none.

I still belive its the friendly atmosphere on here and it still dates back and always will to the way new members got made to feel on the oc. There is a lot of very good info on there and some clever people years of valuable info. 

That said some clever people on here and the info base is always building. I find on here it's very close community and members always willing to travel and help others foc as has happend a lot. Lots of active meets etc and we're all here for a laugh. Yea not everyone is technically minded but we point them in the right directions with opinions not put them down or say you must do .......       Its a good laugh fun place

When I fitted my superpro's I used Dow Corning silicone grease specifically for suspension parts as it doesn't dry out, seems to have held up well so far.

That's not it mate, I'll have a look at what it is tomorrow as it's in my toolbox at work and I'll let you know buddy, it took me a while to find a suitable grease that doesn't dry out, I've used this on my daily and it's been ok on there for a couple of years now.
