It depends on what type of bushing you're installing. If you're simply replacing rubber ones, avoid any petroleum grease and just use a little vegetable oil to get them into the brackets. The rubber ones are soft enough they really need no lubrication -- the vegetable oil breaks down over time.

If it's polyurethane, the ones I've seen installed used lithium because it won't damage the material. And according to a guy who redid his ST205 with them, you need to grease the bushings but good.
