Finally got my front and rears...plan on installing sometime this month. Didnt get any collars or anything...anything i should know about installing these so that I won't need to go back a month later and add something else or make adustments? It's not easy for me to get under there an do work in the parking lot of my complex so I'd like to nail this down on the first shot.

Should I add the collars or will these not move?
Any particular grease I should I use to reduce/eliminate any sqeaking?

Collars are simple enough that you could always add them later by yourself.

I'm sorry I was going to say that they did come with collars but collars were NOT included with the sway bars. I purchased them seperatly. I agree with Aaron get them and have them done at the same time!

They are! I actually couldn't get them to fit on the inside of the bushings so I put them on the outside of the bushings and I feel like they will stay better there because they can't go around the bend.

got them on last weekend and love it, shoulda have done this sooner. feels much cleaner on turns and some of the exit ramps on my way to work can be taken a little wuicker cause i feel the truck hugs the road and is flatter than it was before. a definite must upgrade. Plus when i saw the stock rear when we pulled it out and held it next to the new addco i couldnt believe the difference!! it was almost twice the size!
