Re: Replacing Poly bushing and ball joints

Make sure you use plenty of poly grease on the sides and ends of the bushings before you install them. Other wise they will screech like a banshee. Other than that it's a pretty straight forward swap. Just watch your torque specs and leave everything loose until all the wait is on the suspension so it doesn't bind up on you.
