I use associated black grease just a smidgen (in my TCXX....bd7 ordered) but will use the same process on my yokie.
Also green slim on shock seals and diff seals.

Always consistent results and never leaks

I saw the xenon blue grease has also been recommended, but I can not figure out what an equivalent would be. I thought about using the x ray graphite.

Black grease in the blocks. As stated earlier.

But AE lubricants are the way to go.

No green slime on the nylon/ plastic spacer and the o-ring seal (bottom cap)

Black grease pivot blocks driveshafts etc metal moving parts

Everyone likes different shock oils for different reasons I use associates as well forever it has been consistent and very very good.

The only other stuff I use is Schumacher diff lube for ball diffs but not necessary anymore with geared diffs unless u play with 12th of off road.

Sorry let me rephrase that. AE is the way to go for their black grease, green slime, I use their thread locker, I use their clear diff grease.

Tamiya anti-wear grease (the silver stuff) is really good for blocks as well.

I gave the ae black grease a shot and it was definitely an improvement. I also used the two o ring design with the black bladders and the thin shock bushing, car felt significantly better on the bench and felt a touch more planted on the track.

Strange who's seals?

I've only ever run the stuff and they have only ever swelled from age. Shock oil induces swelling hence changing them every 3 months

I've seen that happen but only when there is a slight tear or defect in the seal.
