What type of grease for suspension?

13 posts in this topic

I am in the process of rebuilding my rear suspension and I wondering what type of grease to use. I have boat trailer wheel bearing grease which is very thick and I have this moly disulfide grease which seems kind of thin. I want to use the trailer bearing grease cuz it seems it will hold up longer during washings, etc... Let me know what you think????

IMHO, follow the manual. It calls for moly grease on most places with lithium based grease (your trailer wheel bearing stuff) in only a few places.

to be honest, any waterproof grease will work good. i simply use red grease that we have at work. it is high-temp, waterproof, multipurpose grease.

LOLOLOL :)

I had a black cat called Buzz (wanna Guess Why his name was Buz)

Any way that dumb stupid cat got the munchies (Buz , Munchies = Wanna Know why I named hi Buz) :D

I had cooked up a bunch of smoked bacon one morning andleft the pan colling on the stove.

Well I went to a buds house came back and that dumb cat ate all the grease.

Well he was laying sideways on the kicthen floor with a streak of grease hanging out of his butt from the cat boz down the hall and right were he layed. All that guy could do was meow and when he did that he crapped himslef.

Whats this got to do wit suspension grease?

I dont know but I dont eat yellow snow either :D

Its true, I had to take him to the vet wrapped in two towels.

He MEOWed Spelt rite

and the poor guy had so much greas in him he had no control.

That episode cost me 95 bucks, one heck of a way to give a cat an enima.

Anyway Buz was adopted by a buddie of mine (I could not keep hime where I moved) and he got himself killed chasing a German Shepard accros a street. The Dog Made it but BLAMMMO the cat did not...

I agree. I might add that the red grease should also be high pressure. It's all that I use for bearings (stearing head, wheel , suspension, etc)and even the axle bolt. I did use a ton of anitseize compound (instead of the red grease)on the swingarm pivot bolt to prevent corrosion and

galling.
