Lubricating Stabilizer Jacks

Would appreciate recommendations on the best way to lubricate the stabilizer jacks? These are the original four, screw-driven, hand cranked jacks that came from the factory. Thanks.

I periodically spray mine with T-9 (Boeshield.) A product originally developed by Boeing for the aircraft industry.

Graphite spray will not attract dust. Rub some bar soap on the threads.

I use mountain bike chain lube. Designed to shed water and dirt.

Super Lube Synthetic Grease

I removed and disassembled each jack and found the screws were originally lubracated with grease after repainting i reasmbeld with super lube a synthetic grease. Not sure if grease is correct lubricant by i have had no problems colecting dirt. when jack is raised the threads are covered from road debris.
