sways creaking?
weird...a week after i installed my hotchkis street sway bars (which is costing me so much gas because i am lovin' the ride!!my car handles like a totally different car ever since i got them.)i notice that when i go over bumps there is a creak(ing) sound from the rear. or when i come to a stop sometimes i hear a creak from the front. the bushings were greased well...does anyone have this creaking problem?hmmmm confused

does it sound like a metal type creak? If so, it is probably your muffler heat shield rubbing against the sway bar.

yes, i just bent the heat shield downward alittle so it wouldn't touch the sway bar.
