According to Husky, who makes my WDH bars need to be lithium greased or petroleum based grease. See below...
Inspect lift bracket support and spring bar interface for excessive wear. Any brand of petroleum based grease may be used between the mating surfaces of the underside of the spring bar and the supporting
surface of the lift bracket if needed.
At The Beginning Of Every Towing Day:
Coat the trunnion clevis pin holes and pins with any brand of petroleum based grease.
