Default front and rear sqeek over bumps

I have a squeek coming from both front and rear while driving over speed bumps slowly. I also have lots of instability on the road while driving (freeway). I also can feel just about every change/bump in road even more pronounced than 20,000 miles ago. Sounds like shocks eh?

The squeeks are probably the swaybar endlinks. I know that's what caused the squeeks over speedbumps on my car. I replaced them with some polyurethane ones from autozone.

I sprayed my rear sway bar bushings and panhard bar bushings with some white lithium grease the other day and it stopped all sqeaks in the rear. I have had sqeaks in the rear since i bought the car 55k ago. Im about to pull the front sway this weekn and do the same.
