I know this isn't "Shop" but whatever. My buddy just the Total Chaos "Caddy Kit" and wants to know what is the best stuff to lube the polyurethane bushings and where to buy it.

DIRT'S FOR RACING, PRERUNNERS ARE FOR GETTING THERE!

Actually there is a lube that you can use that won't go away. Silicone Grease as supplied by either Baker Precision or Energy Suspension. Not just any silicone grease, but some from either vendor. Word on the street is that it is exactly the same grease regardless of who you get it from.
Apply liberally to all metal to urethane contact areas, whether they move relative to each other or not. Wipe off the excess only after the assembly is complete.

I used swerve around my halucinations, now I drive right thru them.

What I'm told is that with that grease if they're going to squeak they;ll either squeak right away, or when they do start to squeak the bushings need replacing. This from a local shop owner.
I could relate my own experiences, except after 1.5 months I STILL don't have the Sub's trans back. I'm glad I didn't need it for a race.......
