Re: [Chrysler300]

Silicone greases within 20 feet of car paint is a huge no no . To me anyway . Cannot get it off you get it on your hands , ends up everywhere . Never used in gearboxes to my knowledge .. Ever . Good lubricant for rubber boat bushing or waterproofing --not gears . 
Wheel bearing grease is probably exactly right grease but has fibers in it which front end grease I think does not . I am not sure of impact of that , other than wheel bearings are all rolling contact . WIndow worm gear is sliding contact , as is ball joint . Studebakers had a special grease for steering maybe ford too . Also sliding worm. But not that critical in window box . I have seen the white stuff rock hard . But 75 year old front ends still greasy . 
Whatever floats your boat ....!

I'm not a fan of either suggestions stated below. I use an orange, silicon-based lubricant called Syl-Glide, which is available in a tube. Works great, doesn't dry up like white lithium grease and isn't messy like wheel bearing grease.

I think the white lithium is somewhat similar to the stuff they used in the factory back in the day. The effect is pretty much the same in appearance anyway. They both tend to dry up into a crust over time. I've found that a more long-lasting grease to use in an application where you won't regularly go back to re-lube is a viscous wheel bearing grease.

I use white lithium grease in a spray can.  Available at most auto parts stores here in the states.
