Mazda stabilizer bars feature grip-type bushings. Adding lube can create noise.

 

This bulletin applies to 2013-2019 Mazda CX-5, 2016-2019 CX-3, 2016-2019 CX-9, 2016-2019 Mazda2 and 2014-2019 Mazda3 and Mazda6 vehicles. Beginning with the CX-5, grip-type front and rear stabilizer bar bushings have been incorporated for noise prevention purposes. 

If any type of grease/lubrication is applied to these bushings, it may create noise due to bushing slippage. 

Want to keep them quiet? Keep them dry.
