I want to use PTFE (dry Teflon spray) on the suspension parts for lubrication. Will this affect the plastic parts? It should be inert but you never know.

Ok Mr T, I see where you are coming from. We have the same policy in the motor trade. If you use something that is not policy, it will be upon your own head. Looking at the official build, I do not see mention of lubrication on the knuckles/ball joints, so I will use the Teflon spray to ease the friction slightly. I will take the punch if it does not workCrying
