Hi, so I replaced the front and read sway bar connecting rods and rear trailing arm bushings on our 2000 CRV AWD. Now, the rear suspension seems extremely stiff. I've jumped up and down on the rear bumper and it barely moves up and down.

I expected it to be stiffer because the old ends were shot and the bushings were broken. Does it just take a while to break in? Thoughts?

The sway bar links have no direct correlation has to how stiff the suspension is. They merely help the sway bars do their job quicker and more precisely. If there's a lot of slop in the joints, you'll get noise. (common RD1 issue)
