Wow, that's the first I heard. And you live in a stormy climate. Nice stroke of luck I'll say.

I just put the bar on today as I could never get the endlink off of the strut. the nut was siezed and the nut on the other side was stripped.

my new endlinks went on like a dream but I didn't check my haynes for torque.

Haynes:

Stabilizer bar
stabilizer bushing clamp nuts 30-35 ft-lbs
stabilizer to connecting rod nuts 30-35ft-lbs
stabilizer connecting rod to strut nuts 30-35ft-lbs

my bushings are on hecka tight, and the end links were torqued to maybe 50ft-lbs. I guess I better go loosen them a bit before my ride to work or it will be really noisy

For the bushing that is attached to the bar, you should torque those to about 18-22ft lbs. Same way you would torque a spark plug sort of speak. The endlink to the sway bar should be torqued at 30-35ft lbs. extra tight. And lube the bushings!!!! TPhelps got lucky, but I wouldn't risk not lubing these, especially if you live somewhere where it rains/snows a lot. I hardly ever get rain, never snows, but I aint taking no risks either!!!

what kind of lube are we talking about here? Should I use some good ol' high temperature caliper pin and boot grease?
