    when greasing my bushings...

    so when i grease my poly bushings on my umi suspension parts, does the suspension have to be "loaded or un-loaded" for greasing???...cause ive always done it with the suspension "loaded" on ramps...just wondering if thats ok, thanks.

    As long as the bushing takes grease, I don't think it matters.

    I have found that a marine type grease generally works best and seems to hold up very well.
