Hi David -

Thanks for the ideas!  I'll try the moly grease first, and if that doesn't
help I'll look into delrin bushings.

On my old '89 GTI 16V I'd had Suspension Techniques bars, if I recall
correctly, and they had poly or some sort of hard plastic bushings which
never squeaked in all the years that I'd used them.  They didn't come with
any grease, if I recall correctly, so I probably either put them on dry or
used regular wheel bearing grease.

However the Neuspeed bar for my S4 as well as the NS bars I'd bought for my
old '96 GTI VR6 all came with some kind of sticky silicone grease, which I
used when installing, and they all started squeaking within months.  So
perhaps a change to regular grease might be all they need!

Thanks again,
- Bob T.
