Are they manual or automatic? Manual you can use WD40 or anything like that,Auto ,I'm not sure if you can use anything on them ,

In the past I have used white lithium grease but I dont like the white residue against the black stabilizer. And it does collect dirt and gunk. Wiping off the excess is a dirty job.

I've also used WD-40 in a pinch.

Lately I've been using the same silicone spray I use on my slideout rails.

Sprays will drip wherever used so I try to cover the area as best I can with a utility tarp and then wipe down the tarp with paper towels for the next miscellaneous job.

I think the important thing is to lubricate them with something and run them up and down a few times to get it all coated.

i use anti sieze. run the brush across the threads and run the jack up and down and it coats it nicely.
