I have replaced the sway br bushings 2x in the last 20000 miles and the are worn out again. They only really stay quiet for about 4000 miles then get progressively worse. The links are new and not a problem. The bushings I used were Moog. What could cause this much stess on these bushings. 1 note I did install nivomat shocks in the rear, I don't see how that would affect this problem though.
Do you

I hate to say it but it just seems to be the design. Don't spray them with oil or anything because it will just cause the problem to happen faster. You may want to get factory parts to see if they last longer.

Thank you. It seems that is the concensus everywhere on the internet, it is good to hear it from someone who is an expert. I have heard the napa ones are better but will probably just pay for factory ones in hope of only replacing them less often.
