      I saw these updated bushings being sold by Neuspeed that have a grease fitting for easy servicing. One thing I don't like about the stock bushings is that you have to remove them to service them. Anyone running them yet? Kinda pricey, they should have included these since the beginning...

      Ugh, I definitely need to pick these up. My bushings now are creaking and moaning now like a wooden ship at ship. WHY SO EXPENSIVE?

      Let us know how they work out for you!

      Woulda been nice to include these with the bar to begin with...
      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.
      Help us with suspension specs!

      of course you're gonna need a grease gun, with a zerk fitting for that fitting.

      then you'll need grease. Running any ol' grease won't do.

      Prothane sells their super grease for urethane bushings in a cartridge for grease guns.

      Too much money, when you can drill a hole, tap it, insert zerk fittings for about 20% of that cost. And when you are done, you still have the drill and tap you bought to do the job. Then you can do the rears, and then you can do all the other cars that you put upgraded sways on, down the road.
