What do you guy's use to fix a..........????

hi guy's
ok my problem is with ADDCo front sway bar 1 3/8 the bar came with red polyurethene bushings
and they make the squeaking noise every time the car bounces
is there any good lube to stop that squeaking sound it's driving me crazy

Thank's

Ford sells a bushing lubricant, I used that on my sway bars because the stuff that came with them was garbage. It really has to be driving you nuts for you to tear everything back apart to lube the bushings though. That is a lot of work for a sqeak.

Or you could just get a set of Energy brand bushings, the kind that has a grease nipple on it. Worked well on my Marquis, every time I did an oil change I greased up those bushings as well.

I considered drilling into the bushing myself and adding a grease zert but don't know if that would actually work, and I was actually thinking of it more for the control arms than sway bar.

white lithium grease is a short term fix.
