    Thanks for the heads-up. But what does that mean? No SAFE DIY installation possible of just EC sways with a pair of Rhino ramps? At this point, I don't want end-links; just sways, if at all (still have to drive the car in the twisties just lowered). Thanks.
    Its been a few months since I did it, but from what I recall, you can do it without removing the wheels, so you can do it on ramps, especially the fronts. I believe the rears are a little easier to manipulate with at least one wheel off, but not impossible with the wheels still on. Just lots of knuckle scraping.

    It just means that one needs to torque all four end link bolts on each sway bar, while full suspension is under load, like on ramps (not jackstands). The rear end links are more difficult to torque down on ramps.

    Any OEM rubber bushings should be torqued with the suspension at normal static operating position. OEM rubber bushings are supposed to be tightened while the suspension is settled. In other words the car as it would sit normally.

    Do you guys think it would work to loosen swaybar bushing brackets, remove bushings and reassemble all while suspension is loaded, while car is on raceramps/ rhinoramps? Using the lower control arms for the jackstands gives me anxiety.

    Thanks to All

    Shouldn't be an issue, just do one bracket/bushing at a time, then put back on and tighten down, then do the other. I wouldn't take both off at the same time. May be ok, but likely not worth the potential hassle.

    So is the consensus that EC sways without end links will be quiet just not as stiff?

    No, Yes

    Most noise for me has come from swaybar bushings. I cannot notice a huge difference after my EC endlinks were replaced with OEM, but prob a bit of a reduction.


    Thanks to all for the knowledge you shared on this thread. I bought some rhino ramps, took belly pan off, loosened the swaybar bushing brackets one at a time as advised, cleaned them and re greased with Energy Suspension Formula 5 Prelube re- assembled and voila no squeaks for now. I hope it lasts. Existing grease was shot. Most recent regrease was at dealership, idk what type they used. Passenger side bushing was a lot harder to remove than driver side, over torqued or maybe misaligned when placed previously?

    Thanks again to all, if /when I get squeaks again I'll update thread. It's prob about time for the rears to start making noise ha

    Is there a way that I can grease or lube the bushings at home?

    Does anyone have a pic of where to put lube? Thanks

    Anyone know if the Eurocode suspension setup could void a warranty for the air ride suspension on an S6?

    My service dept at dealership said that bolt on items like that won't void warrenty. They've worked on my EC sways before, but I paid out of pocket.

    I actually had the dealership put on my EC bars and links. Never had a problem with any warranty claims
