Default Does anyone use these greases ?

I have tri flow clear synthetic grease and also super lube synthetic grease. Wondering if its okay to use one of these on the o rings on the needles when sealing an engine or on the o rings when rebuilding shocks ? Or should I just go with the associated green slime ? These both say they are good for high temp applications.

Thanks for the replies. I was curious because I had these greases laying around from being in the model rr hobby. Didn't want to get rid of them and have to go out and buy new ones if they are still usable. I also have mobil 1. Thanks again

They're good for bearings and drivetrain stuff but probably not for engines. TriFlow has silicone in it if I remember, not good if it gets in the engine.
