Default Sway Bar Question

My car is a DD and I never intend to track it. However now and then I get to have some fun on a winding road. I always felt the car had too much body roll so I had the Ford racing sway bar kit installed. It did exactly what I had hoped for and now I like the way the car handles much better.
My problem is that now (it’s gotten much worse over time) the rear suspension is really creaking and moaning. I would assume that the bushings are much harder than the stock bushings and I’m wondering if my mechanic overlooked some sort of necessary lubrication during the installation. Any suggestions for a fix would be appreciated – I embarrassed to drive over a speed bump in the parking lot.

Look for grease fittings on the sway bar mounts and squirt some grease in them. If not, you can pull the bushings apart one at a time and grease them by hand. Have fun, polyurethane grease is super sticky.
