White lithium grease
Etc etc

I had some Teflon based lube I used on mine. I'd last a trip or two.

Personally planning to test LPS Dry Film PFTE. Worked good for a hinge we made at work, plus my dad swears by LPS stuff. Pricey though.

From reading online, looks like most options only work for a trip or two before needing to be reapplied.

This is why heims are so much better than johnny joints. It gives you something to do in the garage after every wheeling trip.

Wd-40. Other stuff may work better, but wd-40 is always around.

I use aerosol white lithium grease. And never noticed them making noise.

I've heard of the chain grease and it makes sense it would work better seeing what it's designed for.
