..........Just crawled out from under my 2003 3500 and Thought I ask for recommendation(s)on a product too lubricate all rubber bushings on the front suspension ??? Truck only has 51k miles but age becomes a significant factor after a few years . , thanks , jf
On a serious note, I put regular DOT3 Brake Fluid (from the Dolar Store) in a spray bottle. I do all my underneath rubber part on a regular basis. Bushing, mud flaps, hoses, anything I can reach with a spray bottle. DOT3 brake fluid the best product I know fo for thos parts. They get dirt and mud on them anyway. One you have done it a time or too, the mud sprays off much easier. I found this out by using it on the inner plastic fender wells of my Jeep.

I spray that stuff on anything synthetic/rubber/etc whenever I'm down there
changing oil/filter and/or greasing the zerks
Door gaskets about 2 times a year. About time again and must leave
the doors open so as to NOT compress the door gaskets. It renews
them and the windage is less. It takes an hour or more to cure fully
Ditto spray black primer/finish paint whenever down there onto anything metal
that even looks like metal
I keep my vehicles till the wheels fall off or can't/won't fix them anymore
Careful with brake fluid...it is one of the best paint removers I know of
