    Well I use only grease, my 76 strad has everything airtight and each slide creates suction if you try to movie it without hitting in the corresponding piston. anyways, I use Bach's slide grease, it does well. What I do it lube each slide lightly and slide it on, then I pull em back off and grease heavily and then wipe off excess after it is stuck on, and just move the slide back and forth alot, and I never have problems with it moving
