Polyurethane Suspension Bushing Grease

What in the world is this stuff actually. I looked all over town today and didn't find any grease the looked remotely close to what comes with the bushings. When I did then I also used some stuff from Ford which I find out now, has been discontinued (dad had the tube we used, it was an old tube). The grease used worked very well. Everything I've taken back apart was well covered still. Where do I find this stuff? What do I ask for? The closest thing in appearance I have seen, is actually the dielectric grease I have Would this be suitable for use on bushings

I just used some axles bearing grease my dad had in our garage. I think they all do the same job

Nevermind on the dielectric for sure, it is a silicone base and I know the other stuff definitely is not. Any other thoughts? I believe the bushing grease to be a Lithium base, can anyone confirm or deny that?

All I found out about the grease is it's "teflon enriched."

Energy Suspension Lube

You can get this stuff through Jeg's.
