Sr adjustable panhard bar bushings

After lowering my car with eibach sports (and loving how my baby looks and drives now) I also got the sr double adjustable panhard bar installed. It's been two weeks now and the bar rattles loud at every bump like it's extremely loose. I lifted the car and nothing was loose, so I ended up taking it to the shop that I installed it all. I'm told that the bushings needed to be lubbed because of what they are made of (aluminum). Which is probably why the rattling stops in the rain lol

I notice all the other bars are made of polyurethane or something other than aluminum. The shop told me I will continue to have a problem unless I get a bar with better bushings.......is there a better solution to this? Doing this to the bushings every few weeks seems pretty dumb to do. Or do I have to suck it up and buy a different rod? Imma be pretty disappointed if I have to, but I dunno if the rattling will come back since the bushings were lubbed today. Anyone else having this problem. Any help would be much appreciated.

This is why you don't buy inferior parts from the start. Get a BMR bar.

Sr adjustable panhard bar bushings

I'll probably get obliterated for this, but I'm saying it anyways lol. I had one issue with my SR panhard rod, and it was user error. I didn't tighten one side tight enough. When I began driving I could hear a slight clunk when hitting sizable bumps. Once I tightened that up, I haven't heard a noise since. The car has been launched at the track, daily driven, spiritedly driven, and no issues have cropped back up. And the fact there is no added NVH is surprising to me given the fact it's heim joints.

If something were to ever happen to the SR, that's the route I'd be going

If it's an aluminum bushing, it's going to loud as piss. Griggs racing ones are.
