Default Lubing CD Trays

I just got my Sansui CD-390M apart, it is a 5 disc cd changer. The tray moves awfully slow, but I'm now guessing that it may be normal. It is direct drive into a rack and pinion type drive, two stabilizing rails on each side. These are lubed with a white grease, was wondering what would be best to relube these.

I have 100% silicon grease that I've used on spark plugs (dielectric), but it doesn't feel smooth enough, it is a little viscous.

I also have Panef brand white lithium grease, but I'm thinking a petroleum product might not be ideal either. Anyway, it is seperating some and no longer pure white. It is claimed to good for spinning reels, that's why I bought it, waterproof and all.

Just wondering what people use.

This stuff is very good natural castor bean grease, but their server is down at the moment.

I use a very fine grease for the plastic gears which works great, it's translucent blue in colour and made from natural caster beans, it said to acually preserve plastic while lubrcating, made by PBR here is the link, comes in a small tube couple of dollars.
