Pretty much whatever you've got will work. I bought a tub of boat-trailer wheel-bearing grease for rebuilding the bearings on my bike, so I used that. Super water-resistant. And it's blue.

On my Civic, I wrapped the bar with Teflon tape (get it at any home improvement store). I installed the bar a year ago, and it's still pretty quiet back there.

Great timing! I was just about to go outside and fix the squeaking from the swaybars I installed last weekend. I used all the supplied grease but it still started squeaking after a couple of days.

Now I know what to get.

Don't remember exactly when I got my swaybar, but since the end of last December I've put 20k miles on the car and no squeaking from the suspension yet.
