Default Progress RSB Noise?

I installed the Progress RSB on the max and I was getting a creaking noise...so I pulled off the bushings and re-greased with a silicone grease and still getting some noise? Not so creaky now, but I am still having noise? Any ideas? Also have the racingline endlinks and any feedback on how to adjust those correctly would be great, although the car handles awesome after the upgrade, just want to get rid of the noise.

I get the from time to time. Creaking/squeaking from rear end on dips or speed bumps. You have to lubricate the bushings. I have to do this about once a year.

Right now I have some squeaking up front over bumps, gotta to find that. But I had the RSB for years, added the Racingline endlinks last year and wow did that tighten it up.

Apollos...the endlinks made that much of a difference over the stock end links? I have the RSB already, but I'm still using the OEM end links.

They really did, I was kind of surprised. I bought them from a member parting out at the same time I bought the Racingline front sway bar. Had them put on at the same time, huge difference. You know it's not the time of mod that add hp so you don't think much about it on straight line acceleration but highway ramps that's a different story.

All I had before was the springs and rear sway bar, added the endlinks and ftsb felt really tight. All I need now is KC bar and I am good. I don't think it will fit with my current amp situation in the trunk. I think its time for smaller footprint amps.

Really.. I was told the the endlinks didn't make that big of difference... I will take your word for it and have the shop install it since she is out of commission anyway...

Now remember I added the front sway bar at the same time. So maybe together they made the bigger difference, but put it this way, I would do it again.

Apollos, are you talking about the raceline front strut tower bar(FSTB) going across the engine?because the front sway bar goes across bottom of the engine... I have done the FSTB and with the progress rear sway and KCMAXXX rear strut tower bar... Dropped on eibach's I know what you mean in those curves... Just wanted to offer some clarification between the front sway and front strut tower... The only front sway upgrade I have heard of is Nismo or the Altima SE-R.. But they say it's way too much work to replace...
