Mazda service bulletin on stabilizer bushing noise
Mazda has issued a service bulletin #02-003/19 warning shops and DIYers not to ever lubricate the stabilizer bar bushings on the vehicles listed below with any type of lubricant. The bushings used on these vehicles are a different style from normal stabilizer bar bushings. They are a grip type bushing on the front and rear stabilizer bars. The bushings are specially designed to prevent noise and lubricating these bushings will actually defeat the purpose of the grip-type style, resulting in noise. Since the bushings grip the stabilizer bar, lubrication will cause the bushing to slip and make noise.
