Lightbulb Need Ideas on how to grease Swaybar Bushings

I have Steeda Swaybar. I greased the bushings when I installed it about 3 month ago, but now it's starting to squeak. Any ideas how to grease it without unboling it?
Thanks alot!

why not just unbolt it, it only takes 5 minutes...

while the brackets are off you could install a couple of grease zerks, and drilla hole through the bushing so the grease gets to the bar.
