Sway Bar Bushing Noise
 
I've had a pretty bad annoying clunking/rattling sound coming for the rear for quite some time, so I decided to replace my sway bar end links with MevoTech ones since the OEM ones were shot.

Unfortunately, the clunking has gotten worse and its driving me insane. I suspect it is the sway bar bushings, but what do you guys think? On the most level roads without and cracks/potholes, the noise is extremely loud.

Did you replace the bushings?

Mine sounds like this and from some internet sleuthing the likely culprit is the sway bar bushings. I have OEM replacements but haven't done the work yet.

When it gets particularly cold (around -5°C or less) the clunking turns into squeaking.

Sounds like your end links aren't tight to me....

That's also been a common thing I've read in relation to these noises/bushing blame.

If you spray some lubricant into the bushings they will quiet down. It works for me and many others.
