Is there anything particular you recommend. I've got some GT85 here which says it "contains PTFE".
I'd recommend a PTFE dry film lubricant aerosol for best results - but it's quite expensive. Maybe worth trying the GT85 first if you have some to hand.
The one I have in the workshop is a Wurth one:

Help someone out when they're in trouble and they'll remember you when they're in trouble again.

WD40 high performance PTFE Spray there's a wet and a dry lubricant but I found wet is better as it gets right into the bushes.Most good DIY'S should sell or Halfords

hi phil

i remember reading some where that people use a silicone motorbike chain lube it is designed to get into the inners of the chain as once sprayed it foams up

wd 40 is not a long term lubricant in fact it will make metal rust after a while

I actually said WD40 PTFE SPRAY not the same thing as ordinary WD40 and is actually recommended for long term lubrication of rubber bushes !!!
