Since the weather has turned colder, my rear sway bar is squeaking especially first starting out. Has anyone changed to a different bushing material to solve this? Any other solutions that have worked? Thanks!

I've never had a problem with the rear, but I did add a grease fitting to each front mount to cure that problem. It's very easy process, and I haven't had to grease them since (two years).

Can you drill and tap them in place or do you need to remove them? Do you drill through the poly also all the way to the bar to alow grease there, or is the squeak mainly between the bushing and the housing?

I drilled all the way through to the sway bar, then just screwed the grease fitting into the hole without tapping it - no problem.
