You got me started: grease is definately not all the same. Some grease is far superior to moisture and wide temperature ranges that occur on cruisers. personally I'm a fan of the synthetics. When you go to all the trouble to do all this work on something like a cruiser why not use the best products availableI think the only place that a special grease is needed are the birfields=moly grease. Other than that grease is grease right? :dunno:
Oh yeah this brings me to another applicable question-should I grease the pin and bushings prior to installation? I forgot to order greasable spring pins for the opposite from shackle side of the spring.
