That's true! Back in the 80's lithium was everywhere... It's very slickery! But like Ross said, don't have a lot of shear strength... Very easily pushed out of the way and won't provide a decent buffer for heavily pressurised parts... I'd use it to lube Bushing zerts and u-joints, but not the upper and lower Ball Joints.
I worked in a truck shop and did ALOT of greaseing in one year.
I must have went through one tube of grease every 2 days and my personal prefrence before then and after will always be Marine Quality, Aqua Lube I dont know if its just called Aqua Lube but thats what I always called it.
Anyways its made for any application it holds up well to high heat and does not get all dry and also water does not effect it at all its not the Same as the Green Lube its more of a Green Blue and you cant see through it at all like the White Lithium and it holds up very well ive used it in doing over 60 sets of kingpins on kenworths and peterbilts and never had any problems so when you go looking for it just make sure its rated for marine use i guess and you should be ok better safe then sorry.
