I used up all the grease, so should be enough hopefully! It probably felt harder because I was trying to lift up, pushing down on it was pretty easy. Remains to be seen but thought that was something to note.
Fair enough. Some of the bushes might be stiffer in compression when actually compressing the material rather than friction force against things. Unlike spherical bearings they don't have '100%' free movement when you have a triangulated suspension setup.
