Seems to me like full on grease would attract dirt and stuff and muck up the bushings. I'd just use a light spray like WD40 or 3in1.

Assuming that the hinges have bushings like the ones on my GM truck did, anyway. Replacing those was a royal PITA.

Brake or silicon.
Won't wash out when wash the car etc. Doesn't "melt" and stain anything drips on.

Likely have other problems... Roller stop have plastic bearing that wears out and makes noise. Lube only helps short term a best when this happens.

I suspect I have this issue with the driver's door on my Formula. The bushings are fine, but every time I enter and exit the car, the door squawks like an old crow.
