    I have new tube of Park grease, waste of $$ to order slick honey for sus fork maint

    Would I be wasting money by ordering slick honey for my sus fork maint instead of using Park. Right on the bottle of Park, it says for use in sus shocks.

    Most current forks are splash lube with oil so the grease is just used for seals, o-rings, and springs at the most. If you have a fork that actually requires grease for bushing lubrication then the Park grease works though the Slick Honey works better IME.

    I'm a Slick Honey fan too. You don't need much and that stuff never seems to wash off. For me, it's worth the extra $.

    Yes definitely get the Slick Honey. While Park grease will do in a pinch it isn't designed specifically for suspension, it's a general bearing and assembly lube. For the air piston in the RLT Slick Honey is a much better option.
