Fox rear air shock grease?

I have an older Fox rear air shock (2000 Fox Float RC). I think it needs lubed. I downloaded the manual from the Fox Racing website and it says to use only "FOX Low Friction Grease". Of course, I can't find that anywhere and I suppose there are other greases that would work just fine. What do the bike shops use? What do you use?

If your going to go to the trouble of relubing the shock find a seal kit for the shock as it will have all the orings and seals and abit of the fox lube. Its not that hard of a job.

Thanks!

Oh, thanks! I didn't know those kits existed. Found one at beyondbikes.com, but not anywhere else. Anyone know other places online where these kits are available?

How about your local bike shop?

LBS sucks

I asked an LBS about servicing the rear shock. Answer: Ride it until it blows out and then buy a new shock. This is not the first wrong answer I've received from local shops. The Internet is a much better source of information (and gear).
