i hear they do too, and what people do is use graphite(?) on these bushings to eliminate the squeak. Of course, now they have these bushings that are impregnated with graphite and are supposed to not squeak, but i haven't heard anything about those.

My strut rod, swar bar bushings and end links, and coil insulators are all plyurethane. I can hear them squeek a little when going over a speed bump, but that's the only time. And it's not a loud squeek, most people wouldn't even be able to hear it over the exhaust note.

Just get 2-chamber Flowmasters, and you won't hear a thing!!! hehehe, Canadian Mustang sells a front end that uses Milodyne bushings, just as good as poly, without the squeek!! Hope this helps!!

Yes, they do squeak if you don't lubricate them. I used white lithium grease 8 years ago and haven't heard a peep out of them since.

Graphite impregnated bushings don't squeak and don't need lubrication. Got mine from Mustangs Plus a while back. Ask around. Maybe try Kanter, too.

pprince is right. Lithium grease is the answer! On my front sway bar I installed poly bushings, they squeaked. Added some lithium grease and I haven't heard a thing since.

Thanks

by the way, that pic opentracker posted here is my $500 daily driver I bought 6 months ago. It now has a front spoiler, 1 1/8 sway bar, monte carlo bar, and the rear droppped about 3 inches. I'll get updated photos soon.
