Default 3in1 penetrating oil works well to quite your sway bars

I know it sounds strange but I was installing my home built LSD and a bottle of 3in1 was right next to me. I glanced over and gave the sway bar mount bushings and both ends of my endlinks a squirt. The oil was sucked in imidiately.

I noticed as soon as I drove out of my driveway! It seems to last a long time too! So far it has been a couple weeks (with plenty of dirt donuts).

Try it out

Or you can just use grease on the rubber bushings when you install them. I have 3000 miles, and never heard a squeak.

They will start squeeking. I did apply generous amounts of grease to all surfaces on installation.

Thumbs up

Tried this last night. Nice and quiet so far...

At least it is an easy remedy if (when?) they start squeaking again.

Be careful with oils on rubber. It will start to eat away the rubber bushings. Fine on urathane. Use silicone on rubber.
