Has anyone had this problem? It seems that my rear sway bar squeaks on the passenger side. I only hear it when I hit an incline at an angle, which is every time I pull into my driveway. The bar is an 19-20-21mm from Cobb that I have on 20mm. Should I have lubed the bushings when I installed?

Thanks.:D

I used blue boat trailer wheel bearing grease when I put my FHI 18mm bar on. Hasn't made a noise since. But my roof creaks and groans when I go over bumps at an angle. . . rear strut bar cured 1/2 of it.

I used white lithium grease on the bushings and that's helped (thanks jagcars26). I got a can of it at NAPA. I have also heard that Teflon grease will work well, but I wasn't able to find any.

Now I've got to get strut tower braces. :D
