Hi,

I am replacing my sway bar end links. Do the bushings on these links have to be greased as well?

I know the swaybar bushings have to be greased.

I don't think you have to grease the end link bushings. If anybody knows for sure then chime in.

Not unless they're poly and you hate squeaking noises.

I put poly on the end links, no grease and no squeeks. (well not from the end links)

I just wanted to add for future reference- greasing/oiling rubber bushings is a no-no :nope: ; the oil-based lubrication on rubber bushings will cause them to deteriorate much more quickly.

Likfe Malaclypse said though- on poly bushings it's fine if they're noisy. :)

FYI.

i have the moog thermoplastic bushings (blue ones) for both the swaybar and endlinks...so do i grease them with a silicon grease or just leave it?

I am planning on installing this next weekend.
