Try your local NAPA or CO OP/farm supply. I know where we buy our Fuel they have it also, they sell bulk oil and grease there so you could see if there is one close.
All else fails Amazon.com Amazon.com: Hotchkis 3101 Super Grease - 14 oz.: Automotive

I've tried a few different greases, and found that I like the Green Grease cartridges for my grease guns. They keep my poly bushings happy.

When putting the bushings on your car initially, it's essential to prelube with something like Energy Suspension's Formula 5 prelube.

I use the advance auto purple stuff. Dirt cheap and works real well.

Just find something that is a marine grease, as that wont break down the bushings. I believe the brand i use is Lucas, and its either blue or red (as in there are two available) at Advance Auto.

Isn't the "green grease" synthetic? That's what I used on my BMR lca's & panhard bar.

Personally i don't know, i just know BMR says not to use lithium grease with their bushings, which is why i use the marine grease. Cant comment on if the synthetic does or does not work.

I can comment that when your grease gets packed full of coal dust, and is caught between the delrin bushings and your rear sway bar, the bushings are fine, but the bar gets eaten away. Had that happen to me, Sam's reaction upon explanation was great.
