David, white lithium grease was exactly what I was thinking too...yours has been good for all this time? Where did you spray the grease? Did you still remove the filter housing and all that?

For everyone else, why buy a new part, can't you just take the current fan apart and either repack the bearings or clean and reoil? Seems awfully expensive for a noise that (at least for me) goes away once the car warms up?
