I use 1:1 automotive HD axle/bearing grease. The outside grease doesn't play that big of a roll in function, compared to the inside silicone oil.

I was directed towards a WHITE Lithium Grease when I asked. It seems to be working just fine. I can't see why axel/bearing grease wouldn't be ok or better.

I've been using Loctite Viper synthetic lube. I pack the bottom of the case with it also. It keeps dust and grit out.
