Lubrication of nylon bushings

What is the proper lubricant for steel shafts roating on nylon bushings? I am restoring an old VW Beetle (1974) and rebuilding the windshield wiper system trans.
There appeared to be grease on it, but it was filthy. I'm wondering if I should use Lubriplate White, or possibly the newer non-melting silicone grease made for use on disk brake slides, since once the unit is installed in the car it won't be lubed again for years unless there's a problem. Thanks for your help.

aerosol white lithium will probably work as well as any.

Neither one should be an issue or a problem. Gunk it/degrease it to get all the old crud off and then lube it up sparingly. Doesn't need a lot to work well.
