Rear sway bar bushings.

I replaced my old worn out rubber sway bar bushings a few months ago with some Polyurethane bushings. since then, the vehicle creaks like hell when going slow over bumps. I removed them and greased them, tightened them, loosened them, and still they creak. The ones I replaced them with was a two piece set, meaning the bushing was in two pieces and inserted into each of the holes of the sway bar. I'm thinking of replacing them with a one piece such as Energy suspension Polyurethane bushings. any feedback on these or something else I could try before replacing? 99% of my driving is on the road so I do not need quick disconnect sway bars. I would prefer to keep the sway bars I have and just change out the bushings.

That's the set I have installed, and as long as you pre-lube them as the instructions say, there should be no more creaking...

more lube, poly bushings are going to squeak just the nature of the beast you need to really coat them before installing them to prevent squeaks. Though I love Engery products, done a few full bushing swaps with their stuff and never had a squeak. However we coated them in grease before installing.
