Hi Simon,

Many thanks

grease on the suspension eye tube to nylon bush is not necessary, or advisable, if you want a lubricant to aid fitting use penetrating oil. the bushes are self lubricating.

the bushes are exposed, and grease of any type will attract dirt, grease and dirt make a good grinding paste.

I would grease the bolt going through the eye tube as tube can rust to the bolt over time, making removal difficult, any grease or rust inhibitor such as waxoil would do.
