I have used several greases. Nothing really special. Currently I have a sticky green grease in a small grease gun for general purposes. Look at the small grease cylinders - about an inch in diameter and 6 inches long at an auto parts store. The Sta-Lube brand is pretty good and any grease with an EP (extreme presssure) rating would be good. The key is to refresh it at least once a year if not more often.
