Question Question about Whiteline adjustable rear sway bar

I just got the bar today and it didn't come with any instructions. Which way do i put the bushings on the mount? On the flat side of the bushing, it says "L--> <hole> <--R" and the side where it says "<--R" is where the cut in the bushing is, to put on the bar.
Also, do I put the grease on the outside or inside of the bushing?
Thanks

The grease goes inbetween the bushing and the sway bar. As for the bushing orientation, I don't think it makes that much of a difference which way you put them. I can't remember which way I put mine, but I've got no problems.

Just be careful to re-check your bolts after about a tank of gas or so. I lost a bolt that connected my sway bar to my endlink -- I was *not* a happy camper.

As far as I could tell, both bushings are the same. Just install them so that the flat part is facing up.

Make sure you use lots of grease, or you'll get a creaking sound that will drive you nuts and be hard to find. Not speaking from expirence, just what I've heard

Good advise. Definitely recheck your bolts after a couple 100 miles, mine was this close ( ) to falling off a week after the install.

Ok, it was very easy to get the OEM sway bar off, even without taking off the muffler. When I got to putting on the last bolt, for the bushing mount, it wouldn't bolt in straight so I fiddled with it for liek an hour before my dad just decided to force it in. So if not for that bolt it would've taken me about 40 min, including time to take pics of the 2 bars together and greasing up the bushing.
Haven't gone for a drive yet, but tomorrow I will.

If the bolts have a tendency to get loose, should I just slather the thing with locktite before tightening it? I'll be sure to check it out after about 100 miles, but really, the factory ones stay on by themselves, so maybe the locktite would do the trick. Any thoughts?
