Trailer suspension lubricant

Maybe Iím not searching right, I couldnít find any prior conversation about lubricating the suspension joints. Mine do not have zerk fittings on the bolts, no easy way to get grease in the joints. Strangely, I didnít find many YouTube vids on it either.
What are yíall doing and how often?

You may have plastic sleeves around your bolts, lubrication not required. Theoretically. Lippert started this madness almost a decade ago...



That being said, I have never had much faith in those systems, and always replaced hanger bolts with lube holes, zerks on the ends, and used a lithium-base grease that was available in the 8oz cartridges.

I ditched the cheap plastic sleeves and put on the Mor/Ryde wet-bolt kit with the heavy duty shackles.
