    Suspension-specific grease?

    I've seen or heard it mentioned in fork servicing articles or vids (for lubing up dust seals) but can't seem to locate it. Is that what it's actually called or it is simply a particular type of grease like silicon, lithium, etc. Where to find it? Thanks.

    This is what works great. Amazon.com: Buzzys Slick Honey Tube, 2oz: Sports & Outdoors

    Make sure you saturate the dust seal completely.

    FWIW, I spoke with Fox today about a part and asked their CSR gal about it. She said use their green 10 wt on them...huh? I'd thought she'd at least say Float Fluid since the foam rings are soaked in that and reside next to them.

    I soaked my foam rings in the 10wt per the enduro directions. Did the same thing with the dust wipers since I didn't have any grease. The lbs confirmed that they do the same thing.
