That eliminated most of the noise except when making really tight turns. One thing to be SURE of, keep the adjustment bolts on the receiver tight or it will significantly reduce your sway control.
Any grease on the L bracket (or the use of the Bracket Jacket) will dramatically decrease the noise, but also lessen the sway prevention of the equalizer hitch.
This "note" is right on the Equalizer website: "Utilizing lubrication on the Equalizer L-bracket, in the form of the sway Bracket Jacket or any grease type lubricant, may lessen or decrease your sway control by a small degree."
I lube the ball and the rotational points on the hitch, but thats all.
