Throttle shaft seal grease?

Hi all

Just going to replace the throttle shaft seals on my evo 6 throttle body but not sure what grease to use. I have read someone using dielectric silicon grease but not sure if this is the recommended type of grease. Any recommendations?

Cheers

Kerry

Thanks very much for the offer in the end I bought the same Silicon grease (Dow Corning high vacuum grease) I use at work for the mass spec vacuum pump O-rings.
