Grease them well and put them in place of the old ones. I've heard you want to keep that grease that comes with it from getting on your hands since it absorbs into your skins. *shrug*

Once you get them on, cross your fingers and hope that they don't creak. My front MRT links creak when I'm stopping. It is all because of how much urethane is actually making contact with metal, I full greased mine (sides, between the rod and urethane, everywhere) before putting them in and still have the problem.

I'm personally going with a set of Greg's rear links so I won't have to worry about the urethane causing creaking on those.

I think they use lithium grease for polyurethane bushings... lithium is often used to treat depression and bipolar disorder. It can definately be absorbed through the skin, so you guys might want to wear gloves, or at least be sure to wash your hands very well afterward.

i just put mine on with my new whiteline adjustable rear sway bar, and they were very easy, easier than the bar itself. the link goes on the inside of the bar, and the other bushing fits great inside the plates for the links. as for squeking, huh have not heard any yet, but like i said they are brand new. have been on for...... 5 hours now.

Damn, no wonder I was in such a good mood after I got them on.
