Talking CJ Shackle Bushings

I just HAVE to do something to my "new" CJ to personalize it! What are some suggestions for spring shackle bushings? I know of stock rubber and "polyurethane", has anyone used the type that have "grease zerks" on them for lubrication?

Also, what lubricant goes in the T-176 transmisson and the Dana 300 transfer case? I will get a factory shop manual, but I want to change these NOW!!!

Thanks again, Bruce

You folks will be seeing a lot of me, now that I have finally got a REAL Jeep again!! I want to thank you in advance for all suggestions and help!

I have 0" lift heavy-duty, greasable shackles on mu CJ, a VERY worthwhile investment, since the stock ones are weak. I do think the ride is a bit better with the grease. I think they are made by 4WD Hardware, but the Currie ones are nice too.

Not sure about the tranny juice, it's likely gear oil, which is what the Dana 300 uses. I forget and I'm too lazy to go the basement, but it's the usual 90W - blah blah blah, very common, as it is also used in the diffs.
