SaBesto SA 2000 is my favorite lube for stuff under the van and all around where it won't be in contact with people or clothing. Google it and buy online, I haven't found it in any retail stores. I use it on my trans linkage and my suspension/steering..Works good. A bit expensive but way better than silicone, WD 40, 'penetrating oil' or the other stuff you find around. I go "spelunking" with my spray lube every few months to help things that need to move freely. Don Hanson
