Spray lithium grease is ideal but also more expensive. I rarely use WD40 as it is primarily a water dispersant rather then a corrosion releasing agent. I tend to use "DD" brand releasing fluid which comes with it's own pipe extension.
I use WD40 for drying wet electrics and protecting tools such as saws before putting them inro storage.
