What is the best type of grease to use on this if the joystick squeaks

I bought my T Flight 4 HOTAS a little under a year ago and it's been great; however, it has begun to squeak quite a bit during gameplay. Considering that the majority of time spent using it is when the kids and the gf are asleep, this presents a problem. I've looked up other question/answer forums regarding this subject and some suggest lithium grease, others suggest plain old WD-40. I do know how to get to the joint in the joystick to apply the grease but I don't want to kill my device by applying the wrong stuff. Any suggestions? Thank you for your assistance.

"Really doesn’t matter. Lithium grease is a bit heavier, and is used often for cars. WD-40 is a general all-around lubricant, and is more water-like. I’d go for the grease, since in the long run it’d probably be better. True, it will attract dirt and grime more, but you can just wipe off the old stuff and put new grease on

Good luck!"

Silicon Grease will be used only as it will provide best movement to joystick and smoothly too. If you want good quality of Silicon Grease you can visit my Website https://petrelplus.com/food-grade-lubric...
