Copper Ease On Bushes?

Got my Powerflex bushes today but they've been a bit tight on the grease.

I was wondering what other grease I could use to make sure I have plenty on. My worry is that what I use might break down the composition of the bush, a bit like oil and fuels do with rubber. I already have copper ease and LM grease.

I am thinking the copper ease is best for longevity?

IIRC, it's copper grease they supply with the bushes (never enough!) so yeah, copper grease.

Maybe you only need a very light smear... powerflex probably supplied the right amount exactly

Just completed rear end, used copper grease in conjunction with the supplied grease which appeared to have copper in it. Advise from many sources was to make sure I used plenty of grease to ease assembly and avoid squeaking when assembled. Don't use poly bushes in the front, done this just doesn't work, stick with complete wishbone replacement. Good luck with it!

Remember there's also different types of the bushes i.e the self lubricating ones (They have tiny pores containing an oil) I just can't remember which colour it was!!!!
