Default Whiteline rear sway bar squeak...

How do I get rid of it permanently? I have to spray graphite lube on the bushings every now and then but sometimes it doesn't help completely...


anyway to stop it completely without further maintenance? I've heard teflon tape around the bar... anything else?



OT:


I really miss my ex-gf for some reason...

It's her b-day today... two months after we separated.... she went with her "oh so valorous bf"

*sigh*

not only that, my sway bar contacted and rubbed the Whiteline heavy duty endlink on middle setting so i can only use the softest setting.
BTW i did use the teflon tape.

My whitelines have never squeeked and I've had it on for about 3 years now. I just used lots of lube and made sure everything was clean when I mounted it.

The same stuff you used on your cousin.

The grease that comes with most polyurathane bushing kits seems to be almost identical to Super Lube. I don't think it's that hard to find but you do want the grease, not the spray.

yeah, use a normal grease. Spray will just wear off with all the rain we have.

Try lithium grease/lube? It's the stuff they use for garage doors, hinges, and such. I'm not sure if it's gonna be ok on the bushings though.

And it's really hard to resist cousin jokes in this thread.

Remember, Freud says all of your problems are due to repressed sexual fantasies. Just act them out and you're fine.




















Oh wait... you did.

btw, are you gonna post a hotter pic of your cousin? The last one you posted was kinda... meh.
