    Default Suspension Bush lubricant?

    Tonight i put a new set of front shocks in and they have made a massive difference to improve the handling on the R10. But there is still a squeak from the lower wishbone bushes on one side. The bushes are not perished and are about 6 months old. I've sprayed one sort of lubricant on them and they shut up for a few days but then starts again.

    Can anyone suggest a longer lasting lubricant for the bushes. I heard there was some sort of thick lube that u sort of pack around the bush and it soaks in?
