Installed mudflaps and sway bar. I got a weird clunkimg noise every once in a while that sounds like its the sway bar. I've heard other report these problems but never seemed to solve it. Any idea what it might be? I'm going to get under there and retighten everything today. Also is it too late to apply grease? Should I have applied it in between the bushing and the metal?
Hey man they guy I bought the bar from already had poly bushings and I forgot to grease them so I think that might be the problem.
I got under there and tightened everything up a few times already and the noise has decreased in how often I hear it, but its still there. I think I'm gonna go back and grease the bushings today. Do the end links have to be greased as well? I'm not sure if there are actual bushings in the endlink or not but its the same red color as the other bushings so I assumed he upgraded both to poly.
All good man. So I don't think the lack of grease was the problem. After looking at bunch of pics and getting under my car countless times, I realized we forgot the washers on the outside of the end link and the bolt was digging straight into the poly when put under pressure. There were chunks of poly missing on each side...
So I put the washers in and now it only clunks on bumps but no longer on turns... I think the damage has already been done tho... I'm either gonna have to put my old end links with rubber bushings back in or buy some new poly bushings for this set.
I'm just sick of getting under my car 10 times everyday.
