Need grease/lube recommendation for lift

All,

I'm looking for a recommendation on lube/grease for curing some suspension squeaks. I'm getting new front links (kinda) and I want to go through and re-lubricate all the lift components that I installed. I'm tired of hearing things squeak every time I crawl over a speed bump.

What say you? Is there anything specific you guys recommend?

Thanks...

Superlube polyurethane grease. Waterproof clear non-petroleum and it's made for poly bushings.

Awesome, thanks Boss.

You know if any of the major retailers sell that in store?

I have a new lift and I'm getting some squeaks. One night this week I'm going to crawl under to check things out. Which lift components should I hit with lithium grease?

I don't get any bushing squeak--I spray wd-40 at the summer start and grease my ball joints/control arms all/ latchs with valvoline syn brg grease-

Quiet as a mouse-
