    BTW.... you only want a LIGHT coating of lube, NOT grease and don't have it running all over either!!! just enough to keep them wet...

    hmmm, I actually do have tri-flow and that is what I put on 'em. I guess I assumed I needed grease because when I bought my hardrock it had muchos grease on the stanchions. Thanks neccros.
