TRD sways and squeaking bushings?
I recently had sways put in my car and the they have squeaking issues when going over speedbumps or up driveways, has anyone else had these issues? I have had a few mechanics look at it and all they can say is it is normal.

u can also try to use a grease that doesn't harm natural rubber bushings or whatever they are made out of. try to lube them up.

poly-urithane (sp?) bushing I believe. They are heavily greased and the end links are in great shape.

If its not what they said, try to see if the left part of your front sway bar is hitting the front of your car. If you take off your front driver side tire, you can look to see how close the bar is to the front of the car. Mine makes the squeaking noise your talking about whenever I go over big bumps or curbs and its from the sway bar hitting the front member of the car.

I thought we already dealt with the hitting of the bar on the subframe. I will check it again, my car is reminding me of my old squeakey dodge dart frown

You might want to take a look at this, maybe it could be the problem smile.
