    what to lube pivts / shock mounts with (epic)

    hi this might sound stupid, but does it matter what oil i use to lube my shock mounts / pivots with? Bike has started creaking, so i thought i'l lube them up a bit.

    I've got finish line wet lube and Rock n Roll extreme lube, or just plain old engine oil! Or do i need something fancy?

    Thanks

    you need grease.... to repack the bearings in the pivots...oil will just attract dirt and create a paste that will cause more wear


    clean and repack
