Gibraltar mount

I have the original Gibraltar mount with the grey azimuth bushing. I currently am using a Traveler on this mount that weighs in at about 12 lbs.
My problem is the azimuth seems to stick at all temps and have already replaced the bushing.
Is there a better lubricant other than white lithium with silicone that I can use to smooth out the azimuth.
Thanks for any suggestions.

See if you can find some of the spray can teflon lube to apply to the inner surface and top flange of the bushing.
