    I found my front swaybar bushings are STRETCHED! There's a solid 3/16" of extra room! I'm pretty sure that's where my terrible squeaking is coming from :)

    get the Polyurethane sway bar bushings from Prothane. ( Summit Racing is where I got mine. ) You will notice as difference as if you actually upgraded the sway bar itself.

    I'm on it! So tired of the speed bump squeak, the downshift squeak, the upshift squeak, the clutch-chatter-bouncy-flywheel-ultra-rapid-squeak. On a separate note, they shipped me the wrong flywheel so I just put the old one back in 'cause I was on a timeline. Never again! Not horrible, but not the perfection I was going for :)

    I'm assuming these are it: Amazon.com: Prothane 6-1135 Red 27 mm Front Sway Bar Bushing Kit: Automotive

    Make Sure Ya Get The Prothane Grease On The Bushings Not Regular Bearing Grease. Bearing Grease Will Screw Up The Poly Bushings!
    Just Thought I'd Drop My 2 Cents Worth In!

    he shouldn't have to buy extra. they, should come with grease from prothane.... but yes, ^^^ this guy is right... You don't need alot either. Just enough to put a thin coat on both the exterior surface and inner surface where sway bar rides.
