    Default 505 wagon creaky stabiliser bar bushes

    Does anybody have advice regarding how to stop the creak from the front stabiliser bar bushes on a '92 505 wagon. It drives me absolutely nuts !!! The bushes seem to be polyurethane or a hard nylon material. They were replaced recently and are original equipment. I have tried using "superlube" synthetic grease but the noise comes back after a month or so. Any help would be most appreciated.

    Wrap the bar with teflon tape, also known as Plumbers thread tape.

    It _IS_ irritating, isn't it ? I greased mine (sedan) and it fixed the problem.
    They are the only flexibush in the front end of a 505 on which it is ok to put grease. If by chance the teflon tape
    (good idea !) doesn't work, you could try a different grease. Did you spray it in, or take off the metal plate and actually smear it in there ?

    A few years ago when I stocked up on polyurethane bushings from noltech, they recommended and supplied molybdenum disulfide lithium based grease.

    Thanks,

    Yes I did remove the bushes and cleaned up the bar with wet and dry before greasing them. Noise went away and then came back. Think I might try the teflon tape idea.
