I assume you meant PTFE and not PTFT.

Is there a particular NLGI rating that should be used? I've read a lot of mixed information between reddit, youtube and other forums in regards to whether you should use NLGI 2 on linear bearings or if you should be using NLGI 1, 0, or even lighter.

Sorry for the typo, it's PTFE. I just edited the original post.
Only the Z rods and the two crossing rods are working together with linear bearings. And the other 4 XY rods are working with brass bushing inside the sliding block.
For the NLGI rating, we haven't dived too deep into that yet. We normally use SuperLube PTFE type and have no issue with it by now. I searched on their website, it a NLGI grade 2 one.
