addco bushings

is anyone running stock or SRT8 bushings and brackets with their rear addco swaybar? my energy bushings are shot after 70k and maybe being greased 5 times. i hear the rubber OEM bushings are quiet and require less maintenance.

feedback please.

Re: addco bushings

Aren't the Addco and SRT8 sways different diameters with the Addco being larger? I wouldn't think the SRT8 bushings would fit correctly around the larger Addco sway bar. I'm using the supplied Addco poly bushings which squeak terribly unless you grease them. I installed grease fittings and grooved the bushings to accept grease but need to grease them several times a year. It's a PIA!

Re: addco bushings

the purpose of the urethane bushings is to get some use out of that bar.
rubber will just eliminate the gain....



if 70K and 5 times grease is a problem for a modded part that gets used for every mile that jeep roles is a problem........maybe its time for that prius/
