I've had good luck w/ PB blaster and Seafoam as penetrating oils.

now for lubricants, it depends on what you are lubricating. I like white lithium grease for lots of things

ZEP 45 for moving parts (spray on stuff like seat tracks, window regulators, hinges)

Waterprooof Silicone grease for chassis, ujoints, CV joints & so forth.

WD 40 for electrical contacts to clean and dielectric grease to stuff in the plugs to help prevent corrosion.

Food grade silicone spray for zippers

White grease is good for awhile, but can dry out and becomes sticky, then chalky.

OK everybody calm down.
Seriously though, I was asking what a good spray lube to remove rusted parts is. I did a small BB lift and starting spraying 10 days prior to the work and I still had to drill 2 rear shock bolts and cut the tops off of the fronts. Now that I think about it that was a lot of fun. God I love a good sawzall. Oh I removed and reinstalled the springs with no compressor, just a long prybar. I have read about people praising PB on this forum (that's what I used, not impressed) and knocking WD. So what do you like?

for breaking stuff loose I use Blaster. I work on machines at work built in like 1940 and that stuff does ok. like you, I Blastered the sh*t out of my jeep and still had to angle grind my shocks off.

in reality, they all suck. when a bolt is stuck, get a big pipe. if it breaks, cut it out. put anti-seize on bolts you replace. it actually works. most lubes as far as that goes just can't saturate a tight rusted bolt.

I heard kriol aero is the best. But I use PB. I also read that liquid wrench had a better breakage torque (ft/lbs) than PB. But I still do not know for sure.
