suzieque is a name known to all
Which grease/lube/oil do you guys use on door hinges?

my front lower passenger door hinge is creaking (vs squeaking), which type of oil do you guys use? I tried the white lithium spray but didn't seem to work as well as a few drops of oil.

There is a TSB for this condition. http://www.wkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk_2301810.pdf

I use a small amount of teflon spray lube (Super Lube) occasionally. Wipe off excess. Seems to get in better than thicker lithium spray grease. No noises.
