If the grease doesnt help, then try to wrap the hardware that the bushing goes over/in with teflon tape(Example: If this was a rear sway bar bushing then just wrap the bar first with teflon tape, then install the bushing&collar). Only down side is that this requires re-installing them, so it can be time-consuming depending on what bushing this is. Enjoy

They come with the extra thick grease from the factory, maybe you can just buy a tube of that ****. Probably just put on as much as possble and re-lube all the bushings every 6 months or so.
cheers
