I use Mobile 1 SPH-1000 and re-grease with my oil change intervals if applicable (between 10-15k).

It is the sway bar bushings for sure, while on the lift I grabbed on the bar rocked it fore/aft left/right and was able to recreate the noise. The links are probably ok, I had the dealer replace them @ 22k (warranty) because they were clicking, but since I am "in the neighborhood" I thought it would be a good idea.

I am paying for the Moog name I'm sure. In hindsight, I could have picked up master pro at O'reilly's for $25.00 vs $50.00 and still have gotten a quality product.
