Maybe a small amount of silicone lube. Be careful some chemicals in lubricants can damage plastic, rubber or urethan materials....

Years ago when I worked in a garage we used what we call Dry Lube. Not sure if that was the brand or what we called it. We used it on dry bushings and springs. It did the job. Wish I could be a better help.

The best thing going is CRC powerlube.. spray the areas and leave them wet.. the lube will not hurt the bushings nor cause any softening of same..

I have always had good luck with a good "moly" based suspension lube. I think it is still available in tubes at NAPA stores. Both in regular tubes and also tubes for lube guns.

I have never had moly hurt rubber or plastic bushings and has a great consistency for staying in the "friction zones".

I would almost bet money that "dake's" Dry Lube had some moly in it.
