Was I supposed to lubricate the bushings before installing my new RDSPort sways?
They came with no documentation or additional items, however other products from RDSport indicate that they come with proprietary lubricant.
I like proprietary and I like Lube, but mine did not come with any.
Teflon I assume, or something dry?

They sound horrid.

The noise is intense in the back bar, i put grease on the bushings and after some time the noise there again !!!
I changed the bushings with new ones that Trinity Autosport sent me, i put grease on them , after some time the noise there again !!!
The bushings of RDSport are made form hard material and will always make noise.
The permament solution to the problem of noise is only bushings from M3 E46 csl, part number: 33552282682

Just wanted to update this in case anyone had the same issue. My front sway bar bushings started squeaking and needed to be re-lubed. After some research this is the same lube that RDSport uses. It is specially made for polyurethane and very tacky like glue so it does not wash off easily. Stuff is amazing and things are back to being quiet.

That should be fine as well. He recommended that to me, but I had already ordered the other one.
