Looking at my PST bushings, I see grease between the shell and bushing, can I assume there is grease between the sleeve and bushing?

If I dont have too, I'd rather not take them apart.

NO.. there is no grease between the bushing and the sleeve. You can revove it rather easily tho. Using a vise (open) or 2 pieces of wood, use a deep socket (slightly slimmer than the sleeve) and a hammer to push out the sleeve. Add grease and use hammer to tap the sleeve back in. I did it with all of them in about 10 minutes.

Don't be afraid to take it apart. It's just the sleeve, bushings and the shell. Nothing to it.

I took several of mine apart, and YES they were greased already....... After seeing that I left them alone and installed them as they were, gooping the stuff on the ends of the bushings during installation of the control arms..

2 weeks and no squeeks....

Just did mine. Didnt seem to have any grease on the sleeve, if they didnt, it wasnt obvious but seeing how easy it was, didnt hurt putting more.
