Lithium grease works well, but if you drive where road/sea salt are issues, you might try anti-seize compound if you like to take off the doors seasonally. It makes removal a bit less of a struggle.

Search for Delrin hinge bushings. You won't have to lube them ever again.

And if you get the delrin, don't grease them. I think that they are OK with white grease, but everything else makes delrin swell up.

I got the delrin bushings in myself,however, I lubed them up with white grease when I inserted them, mainly to prevent everything else from rusting. Good upgrade if you get them on sale, got mine for half-price.

I use a heavy multi purpose grease. It stood the test of winter. This spring my doors came right out. No mess either. Apply and wipe and leftover. Done.

I plan on going doorless whenever it is warm enough and since I live alone being able to remove them by myself is paramount. Good info here. Thx

For the standard bushings and pins, I'd use a clear dielectric grease called Superlube. That **** is the bomb. Doesn't smell, doesn't wick away, doesn't wash away, not affected by salt, and it's non-toxic. Expensive, but it does 1000 jobs.

How did you find them on sale?

I can only find one source when I googled 'delrin bushings'

Thanks,

John

I just use wheel bearing grease. It's all I had. Works fine for me.

The problem with grease is that dirt sticks to it when you run without the doors. Be sure to clean before putting doors back on!

Never put doors on and no need for grease...

But I use Ant seize instead of grease it works fine for me.
