An excellent lubricant to use on high pressure areas like door hinges is a product called Door Ease, it would work great on your hinge.

When I bought new hinge assemblies from scamp I just put them on the way they came. I bought them thinking the bushing on mine was shot, but still the squeakers.

Moly grease: is this a pure grease you used or those mixed with lithium? Also, a person earlier on this thread recommended tri-flow to me (I believe it's a bicycle chain/derailed lube). Anyway all I ever ended up using was silicone spray which doesn't seem to last very long. Then hinges squeak again.

That door ease looks like a good product too. Tried to find an msds sheet on it to see ingredients but couldn't find one. The tri-flow I mentioned earlier has Teflon in it.

Door Ease is a good old fashioned wax based lubricant.
I have been using it for years as a mechanic, works and no mess for customers to complain about.
It works well on door hinges and equally well on fan belts that squeak.
Here is the MSDS http://agscompany.com/images/stories...ck_English.pdf

door squeak gone !!!

I guess it just took time.....this door squeak drove me crazy last summer.... last fall I hit it with everything I had on hand and could not get rid of the squeak.....then this spring...it's GONE !!!....I suppose it just took a long time for the oil to drip down inside that long piano hinge (made impossible to get to by all those nylon washers/spacers) I'm thrilled....I'm going to keep squirtin' a bit of oil on that thing every now and then from now on.
