I now store my L clips locked up with my bars because of this post.

Although the Equal-i-zer manual doesn't say to lubricate the bars, it does state the following:

"Lubricating the socket joint may help reduce this noise, and is part of the required regular maintenance routine. Lubricating the L-bracket joint is optional. A better solution is a set of official Equal-i-zer brand Sway Bracket JacketsTM. They quiet the ride without the mess of using a lubricant."

x2 did not now to grease them, We never greased as long as we have been towing.

I also just lay them on the ground or up against the frame

Not so. Someone swiped one of my round bars. Cost about $80 to replace.

Question about greasing these bars. I thought you weren't suppose to grease the bars because that would decrease the friction for sway control. Do I have this wrong?
