My fronts are starting to creak slightly so I'd like to lube them now while the weather is still fairly warm. I remember using the product Slyde Glyde on my last 88GT and they never creaked again. I'm fresh out and forgot where I purchased it! I did a google search but nothing came up, even when I spelled it properly. Is it on the www or one of the major auto chains? Thanks for some help.

can't find anything with that spelling, but this sounds like it might be similar:

also found a graphite based lube, but only saw a gallon tub here:

tho I like the writeup on the first one, it sticks and stays put!

Do you mean Sil-Glyde? It's a silicone (or silicone/lithium) grease, and I believe NAPA carries it.

I think that's an RV product. You normally spray it on slideout parts on an RV. It goes on like a penetrating oil and then turns to a light grease. You can buy it at RV dealers.

I've had good luck with plain old dielectric grease, which is also silicone based.

Yes....that's it! No wonder I couldn't find it in a search I'll look at NAPA again tomorrow. Thanks for all the replies

Here's the list of ingredients from the MSDS:



Silicon (sand) is used in it, not silicone. The stuff works great on the 88 sleeves because of the large surface area. Other greases seem to have more sliding resistance.

edit spelling

Where can I get a large tube of this? Around here they only carry the little single-serving packets and want $1 each for just three drops of it.
