So yes and no.
Ah. Yeah, my Steeda bar was making a hell of a racket. I removed the brackets and greased inside the bushing with lithium grease, and I also greased the outside of the bushing that contacts the bracket. Overally, it's very easy to do, you don't even need to disconnect the endlinks.

I'm at a loss now with my clunk. The only things left are a possible structural deficiency, bad subframe bushings/misalignment, or bad struts. I think I'm going to follow up on the promise I made to myself and start searching for a replacement vehicle that isn't a Ford; this is ridiculous.
