My front suspension is squeaking. Although the control are bushings could be better, they're not squeaking. With the hood open, I can push down on the bumper, and put a hand on the swaybar. You can "feel" the squeak in the bar itself, and identify that that is the source of the bad squeak. My car has HO Racing sway bars front and rear. The bushings appear to be in good shape, and installed correctly. They aren't bulging out of the brackets or anything. The endlinks look good as well. I did a search first, but I'm still not sure what to do to stop this.

Well, VIN, if the bushings are urethane, you
can simply grease them. This is REQUIRED with
a urethane bushing.
BTW, my UCA bashings were shot, the squeak was
unbearable..
EDIT Just looked your sig over again... your car
is indentical to mine except the SLP hood.

They look to be urethane. Do I need to remove the endlinks first, then drop the brackets, or just unbolt the brackets? I know I need new bracket bolts, since I didn't install the bar, and don't know if they used torque-to-yield or not. Any special type of lube that stays better, or just plain ol' chassis grease?

You can probably get away with just taking
the clamps off, remove both and pry the bar down.
Worked on mine, anyway. Just plain grease should be O.K. On my Jeep I used a silicone chassis grease.
I lube it once a year and no probs. yet.
If you find torque-to-yield bolts in there, I'd
replace them.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
