    use some plumber's grease, other greases tend to break down over time from weathering.....plumber's grease does not.

    Don't know about plumbers grease. Silicone is what you need for the eurathane. It can be hard to find. It's often sold in small tubes as "tune-up grease" - 'cause you use it on spark plug boots.

    Cusco utilizes rubber like oe, but silicone is what you want- I've used sil-glyde, napa part # 765-1351. For urethane bushings I use Reese teflon hitch ball lube-it utilizes white teflon, very slick and it lasts.

    I'm familiar with a couple other options:

    1. Teflon tape - works quite well and is the least messy, but does wear out (probably as often as the average grease.)

    2. My favorite option is Anti-Seize. It stays put better than just about anything out there, and I've experienced nary a squeek on the last 3 cars I've owned.

    There was a TSB from Audi afew years ago regarding sway bar squeak. Anti-seize Compound was the fix for it.

    For the stock ones I always use wheel bearing grease to get rid of squeaks. None ever came back to the dealership after I lubed them, so It would seem like that would work just fine.
