bwoody swaybar links - noisy (squeaks)

Anyone else having loud creaks/squeaks from the Bwoody Swaybar Links or know how to remove the noise?

I'm going to pull and grease all around the link bushings but I don't see how this is going to solve it. The swaybar bushings themselves have been regreased but the sound is definitely on the links themselves.

It's very noticeable from inside the Jeep.

thanks -

Mine started within about a month of installing them (I installed them at the same time as the SRT swaybars). No lift on this Jeep. The noise started about a month after the install. I'll try just regreasing everything and see if it helps.

Front or rear?

You need to use something like a marine grade grease that will not break down if it gets wet

Re: bwoody swaybar links - noisy (squeaks)

These are the Bwoody Rear Links.. I do have Marine Grease so will give that a try too. The links have small bushings in them so I wouldn't expect them to make any noise even without grease - but I'll give it a try.

GREASE is mandatory/ and bwoody will even suggest anti-sieze as a solution.

its a POLY bushing that moves IT NEEDS GREASE/

Hopefully that is all it is, I hope it will be that easy. I did grease on the original install but I'll know this weekend if it solves it when I take it apart - thanks.

Re: bwoody swaybar links - noisy (squeaks)

I have had the same problem with the rear of my jeep too. Sounds like I may need to try some more grease on my bwoody's!
