these are designed to be lubed by water/snow. while i can't see grease hurting? it can on some plastic. remember most grease has metal in it.( shear strength)
This is not true. Grease does not have metal in it. Some grease has molybdenum (moly) in it but it's in a far different form than the moly used in steel production. Also, a moly grease would not be a good choice for a snowmobile suspension application.

Lithium complex grease, uses Lithium hydroxide as part of the complex with an acid and 12 HSA (C18H36O3), to make the thickener, which holds the oil and the additives. This lithium hydroxide is not lithium in the elemental metallic form, it is an inorganic compound.

Some of the best water resistant automotive greases use a Calcium Sulfonate thickener.
100% true on all accounts but I'm guessing on the chemistry part. I sell the stuff but I am not a chemical engineer or chemist.
